A simple DLP-bioprinting strategy to produce cell-laden crypt-villous structures for an advanced 3D gut model

A new scientific paper led by Núria Torras and Elena Martínez, coordinator of the BRIGHTER project, shows a simple 3D bioprinting approach for the direct fabrication of advanced cell-laden tissue constructs by means of visible-light photopolymerization. The new approach allows the fabrication of cell-laden structures resembling the intestinal mucosa in a single printing step.

Interview with Brigitte Angres and Helmut Wurst: BRIGHTER’s project leaders at Cellendes

Brigitte Angres and Helmut Wurst are co-founders of the company Cellendes, a privately-owned biotechnology company founded in 2009 as a spinoff of the NMI Natural and Medical Sciences Institute at the University of Tübingen (NMI). Cellendes fuses its expertise in chemical, biochemical and molecular biology assays to develop biomimetic hydrogel systems for three-dimensional cell culture. Its hydrogel technology comprises synthetic or non-animal derived defined components that enables the personalized and adaptable design of extracellular environments for 3-D cell culture. Check this interview and get to know more about Helmut and Brigitte and their participation in BRIGHTER project. Enjoy it!

Development of an open-source 3D stereolithographic bioprinter device

A recent work conducted by Brighter project researchers at Goethe University Frankfurt, Louise Breideband, Levin Hafa Francesco Pampaloni and colleagues, describes the development of an open-source bioprinter device based on a consumer-grade 3D light stereolithographic (SL) printer. This new SL bioprinter can produce complex constructs that preserve cell viability and recapitulate the physiology of tissues.
