Minister for Research and Innovation Seán Sherlock, TD, opened the 3D Bioprinting Symposium at Dublin City University (DCU) recently.  The symposium which was run by National Centre for Sensor Research (NCSR) and Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) included presentations by Clinicians, Researchers and Materials Fabrication Scientists from around the world, including Australia, Arizona and Germany.

Over the two days presentations were made on 3D Bioprinting Challenges within the Health Care Sector, Engineering and Scientific Capabilities as well as the future of 3D Bioprinting.

3D printer demonstrations were made and examples of 3d printed items exhibited.  Students and speakers were invited to display posters showcasing their hard work; this included a 3d printed bio-mimetic fish for the detection of pollutants in the water and a printed cholesterol biosensor based on a novel h202 electrocatalyst.
