Ten of these research articles were featured as “cover image”, “highlighted paper”, “featured article”, “highly commended awards” and “VIP paper”.  His research on the additive manufacturing of biodegradable scaffolds has been in clinical trials with one product approved by CE certificate. He has been awarded the first prize of Natural Science Awards for Universities from Shaanxi Province in 2017 and the first prize of Technology Invention Awards from Ministry of Education of China in 2011.

Multiscale additive manufacturing for biomedical applications

The application of additive manufacturing (AM) in biomedical and tissue engineering fields enables to fabricate artificial implants with patient-specific geometry and biomimetic internal microstructures, which could potentially enhance their biological functions in vitro and in vivo. Here we will introduce our bio-additive manufacturing researches in three parts. The first part is related to the use of AM techniques to customize non-living implants with patient-specific geometry for personalized surgery. In the second part, AM-based fabrication of biodegradable tissue-engineering scaffolds with biomimetic microstructures and gradient interface will be presented. In the third part, we will introduce our latest micro/nanoscale biprinting strategies to fabricate high-resolution fibrous structures as well as living tissue models. We mainly investigate the relationship between scaffold structures and tissue functions, and the ultimate goal is to fabricate living tissue-engineered constructs with biological functions.
