Since its inception in 2006, the International Society for Biofabrication (ISBF) has been at the forefront of advancing biofabrication research and fostering collaboration among experts in the field. One of the highlights of ISBF’s annual calendar is the International Conference on Biofabrication (ICB), a gathering of global leaders, scholars, clinicians, and industry representatives working in various facets of biofabrication. This year, ICB 2023 is set to take place in the picturesque city of Saskatoon, Canada, and it promises to be a remarkable event.
At ICB 2023, we are proud to showcase the groundbreaking work of our members, who are pushing the boundaries of biofabrication research. Here’s a glimpse of some of the exciting presentations and posters that will be featured:
Jürgen Groll: “Poly(2-Oxazolines) as Biomaterial Ink and Bioink: from MEW Printing Vasculature to On-Chip Fabrication and In-Flow 3D-Printing of Cell-Laden Microgel Constructs.”
Lys Sprenger: “ADA-GEL Composite Ink Containing Anisotropic Fillers for Skeletal Muscle Cells.”
Camilla Mussoni: “The Glomerular Filtration Barrier: Fabrication and Testing of a Biomimetic In Vitro Model.”
Nathaly Chicaiza Cabezas: “Vasculogenesis by hiMPCs in Vascular Formation using 3D Bioprinting.”
Kirill Kriukov/Regina Ebert: “Membrane Engineering as a Tool to Control the Behavior of Mesenchymal Stromal Cells in Biofabrication Processes.”
Paula Büttner: “Dual-Stage Crosslinking Bioink Solely Made from Hyaluronic Acid Components for Bioprinting Cartilaginous Tissues.”
Torsten Blunk: “Cancer Cell Migration Depends on Adjacent Stromal Cells in a 3D Bioprinted Breast Cancer Model.”
These contributions represent a diverse range of topics and approaches within the field of biofabrication, reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of our society.
The 2023 ICB at Saskatoon promises to be an exceptional event. Building on the success of the 2022 ICB in Italy, which attracted over 400 attendees from 29 countries, this year’s conference will offer a world-class platform. The program will cover various themes, including Biomaterials and Bioinks, Biofabrication Methods and Technologies, Biofabrication and Applications, Advanced Biomedical Imaging, Modeling and Machine Learning in Biofabrication, and Technology Translation and Commercialization.
Moreover, the conference provides opportunities for support and sponsorship, offering exhibition booth spaces and opportunities for oral and poster presentations. These opportunities can help organizations increase their visibility and raise awareness of their missions, technologies, products, and services.
Saskatoon, situated on Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis people, is known for its natural beauty, urban amenities, and warm Canadian hospitality. It’s no wonder that Saskatoon was recognized by the New York Times as one of the “52 Places to Visit in 2018.”
We believe that the 2023 ICB at Saskatoon will not only provide an excellent scientific platform but also offer an enjoyable experience in a beautiful setting. 🇨🇦🔬🌟 #ICB2023 #Biofabrication #Saskatoon #ISBF
