3D printed hydrogel constructs for orthopedic applications
Supervisor (Erlangen): Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini
This research project is investigating the development and characterisation of a new family of printable hydrogels. The scope is the fabrication of hydrogel constructs and the study of their chemical and physical properties and biocompatibility. The new constructs are tailored for orthopedics applications, specifically for the treatment of degenerative articular cartilage. The project is in collaboration with assoc. Prof. Boonrat Lohwongwatana, M3D lab, (Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University) and the Biomedical engineering program, Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University.
