The ability to manipulate and distribute living mammalian cells with control presents fascinating possibilities for a plethora of applications in healthcare. These range from possibilities in tissue engineering and regenerative biology/medicine, to those of a therapeutic nature. The physical sciences are increasingly playing a pivotal role in this endeavor by both advancing existing cell engineering technology and pioneering new protocols for the creation of biologically viable structures. The presentation will briefly introduce leading technologies, which have been fully validated from a physical, chemical and biological stand point for completely demonstrating their inertness for directly handling the most intricate advanced material known to humankind. A few selected biotechnological applications will be presented where these protocols could undergo focused exploration.
This presentation was part of the Materials Today Virtual Conference: Biomaterials (19-21 November, 2013).
