Developing solutions for tissue regeneration
An unprecedented biomaterial and fabrication platform to achieve a breakthrough in 3D bioprinting technologies and provide innovative scaffolds for damaged or diseased multi-tissue biosystem repair
This is InterLynk
Human-based, patient-specific, multimaterial 3D scaffolds
The repair of biological architectures where multiple tissues, as bone, cartilage, ligament and tendon, are arranged together and interact to produce function, is a complex process requiring differential biochemical and mechanical cues. InterLynk partners will develop multimaterial 3D scaffolds with exceptional biofunctionality to induce tissue-specific regeneration of such anatomical structures.
The ambition of the InterLynk Project is to radically transform the design and fabrication of scaffolds for multi-tissue regeneration, and demonstrate the potential of the new regenerative solution in the total replacement of the dissimilar, weight-bearing tissues composing the temporomandibular joint.
Development of a portfolio of biomaterials
Multimaterial additive co-processing
Strategies for health technology co-creation
8 partners including universities, a research&technology organization and SMEs, from 4 EU countries
A transdisciplinary team with expertise in materials science, AM systems, manufacturing process modelling, computational biomechanics, tissue engineering, biology and regenerative medicine, will collaborate to expand the frontiers of bioprinting, personalized and regenerative medicine.
