Biofabrication and 3D printing

QUT researchers are developing new biomaterials, and looking at novel ways to interface these with natural tissue. Our scientists are developing techniques to create new ways to grow 3D tissue structures using advanced imaging, cell and tissue analysis, microscopy, micro-computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and pre-clinical models and scaffold/tissue histological analyses.

Advances in biofabrication research led by the Herston Biofabrication Institute, a partnership between Metro North Hospital and Health Service and QUT, will transform the way we provide health care by producing innovative personalised and automated treatments.
