Prof. Boccaccini attended the 2nd International Symposium on Biofabrication for NIFE, in cooperation with the International Interdisciplinary Alliance against Implant-related Infections (I4A), held at Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany, on 31 August – 1st September, 2017. Prof. Boccaccini presented the guest lecture: “Enhancing the properties of alginate-based bioinks for biofabrication of tissue scaffolds”, giving an overview of the recent research activities in the field of biofabrication at the Institute of Biomaterials.
