The University of Minnesota’s Bioprinting Facility studies human cell viability, proliferation, migration, and differentiation, as well as tissue morphogenesis, in three-dimensionally printed tissue constructs.  We synthesize synthetic and natural biomaterials for use as “inks” in bioprinting projects. We employ a variety of bioprinting techniques and hydrogel crosslinking methods.

The facility provides bioprinters, reagents, consumables, an automatic imaging system, and custom support parts to meet all your bioprinting research needs.
