    Zoom LInk:

    In this talk I will describe cutting-edge bio and nanotechnologies for engineering functional tissues and organs, focusing on the design of new biomaterials mimicking the natural microenvironment, or releasing biofactors to promote stem cell recruitment and tissue protection. In addition, I will discuss the development of patient-specific materials and 3D-printing of personalized vascularized tissues and organs. Finally, I will show a new direction in tissue engineering, where, micro and nanoelectronics are integrated within engineered tissues to form cyborg tissues and bionic organs.
