Research Title/Research Topic: INKJET-BASED BIO-PATTERNING TO SPATIALLY CONTROL BONE FORMATION
Current Research Description: Three-dimensional control of tissue engineering can enable substantial improvements in reconstruction of complex bony structure abnormalities Ė for example, those that may occur following trauma, surgical intervention, or congenital malformation. Biological spatial patterning of growth factors plays a critical role directing cell fate during embryo development and wound healing. The capability to engineer specified and persistent spatial patterns of endogenous growth factors within biologically-relevant substrates would be useful to create and sculpt a desired tissue type with a precise shape. The goal of this study is to evaluate the use of bio-printed bone morphogenetic protein (BMP-2) and noggin (well-known, respectively, as osteogenic and osteoinhibitory factors) to: 1) direct stem cell fate towards osteoblast differentiation in vitro in a spatially controlled manner; and 2) spatially control bone formation in vivo.
