Biofabrication combines advanced fabrication techniques with biological systems to prepare designed tissue constructs. These can be applied for tissue engineering, as 3D in vitro biologic models or as medical therapeutic products.
Biofabrication is an international, research-driven master’s programme comprising a first year of coursework and research at Utrecht University / UMC Utrecht, followed by a research project and courses in Australia in the second year, at one of two universities which are at the forefront of 3D printing for medical applications.
Upon completion, a double degree can be obtained, both from Utrecht University and the Australian host institution. Biofabrication is part of the Master’s programmes in Biomedical Sciences of the Graduate School of Life Sciences.
