Starting signal for Heal-X Bioink: BMBF project on the future of 3D bioprinting

Today saw the much-anticipated kick-off of the BMBF-funded Heal-X Bioink project, which focuses on the development of a self-healing, bio-inspired hydrogel platform for next-generation bioprinting. The event was a great success, with high-profile partners from the Technical University of Darmstadt, the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz and the VDI project management organization in attendance. 

The agenda included a brief introduction of the partners, discussions on preliminary work on the project and the definition of work packages and first steps/results. 

The cooperation and commitment of all involved promises promising progress in the field of 3D bioprinting. We are looking forward to the upcoming developments.
