Connaught Summer Institute: 3-D Bioprinting Workshop

August 15-18, 2016


The 3-D Bioprinting Workshop had the inaugural event in August 2014. The aim of the workshop is to engage international professors, graduate students, post doctoral fellows, and other scholars to foster rich interdisciplinary collaboration and creative methods for research and innovation. Participants attend research presentations in the mornings, and conduct hands-on labs in the afternoons.


This year, the workshop includes a DIY 3D printer competition. Students will have the opportunity to build their own 3D printers (Buildclass) the week before the workshop (Aug 11-12) and use the printers to print, test, and use constructs during the lab modules of the workshop (Aug 15-18). To be included in the 3D printer competition and lab modules of the workshop, please take the time to fill out the 4 question in the registration page indicating your interest.
