Bio-Design and Manufacturing (BDM), launched in 2018 by Springer and Zhejiang University Press, reports new research, new technology and new applications in the field of biomanufacturing, especially 3D bioprinting. As an interdisciplinary field, this journal covers the following TOPICS:
Topic 1: Novel additive manufacturing mechatronic systems, in particular, 3D bioprinting platforms
Topic 2: Biomaterials and formulation of novel “bioinks” for tissue-specific applications
Topic 3: Engineering tissues and organs in vitro and in vivo
Topic 4: Design and fabrication of organ-on-a-chip, disease models, bioreactors, and medical and diagnostic devices
Topic 5: Design of therapeutic products, cellular products, and macromolecular products
BAMOS: Biomaterials and Additive Manufacturing: Osteochondral Scaffold innovation, H2020-MSCA-RISE-2016-734156
BAMOS (Biomaterials and Additive Manufacturing: Osteochondral Scaffold innovation) project is funded under the Research and Innovation Staff Exchanges (RISE) action (H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions), which supports short-term mobility of research and innovation staff at all career levels. BAMOS will develop new materials and additive manufacturing technologies for the fabrication of custom-tailored osteochondral scaffolds. The new technologies will undergo full pre-clinical evaluation in order that the scaffolds are able to enter clinical trial after the project.
On behalf of the scientific committee, we courteously welcome you to participate in Hangzhou International Conference on Biomaterials，Bio-Design and Manufacturing (BDMC2018) in conjunction with H2020 BAMOS Project 2018 Meeting, which will be held in Hangzhou, China during August 26-28, 2018. The objective of the conference is to enhance the influence of the new journal Bio-Design and Manufacturing and promote the collaboration and innovation of researchers and industries in the field of biomanufacturing.
Hangzhou is a rapid developing international metropolis located in the southeast of China, full of splendid culture and beautiful legends. It was famous for successfully holding the G20 Summit. Zhejiang University is one of the top universities in China. It hosted NSFC biomanufacturing summit last year, 60 top experts from different disciplines gathered together to depict the future blueprint of biomanufacturing in China. Joint International Research Lab on 3D Bioprinting of Zhejiang University and University of Oxford was set up in the frontier research of 3D bioprinting.
