Simone Sprio

KEYNOTE: Biomorphic transformation: from natural structures to biomimetic bone substitutes

Simone Sprio

Speaker position

Researcher at Institute of Science and Technology for Ceramics, National Research Council

Speaker bio

Simone Sprio, M.Sc. in Physics and Ph.D in Chemistry, is Group Leader at the Institute of Science and Technology for Ceramics of the National Research Council of Italy. Since 1997 he is active in the field of research and development of new ceramic biomaterials and devices for bone regeneration, with particular attention to nature-inspired materials with enhanced biomimesis and mechanical properties for load-bearing applications. His research record accounts for more than 100 published papers (H-index = 21) in the field and 9 patents. WP Leader of EU-funded projects and coordinator of national projects. Editor of a multi-disciplinary book on biomimesis and nature-inspired materials for regenerative devices.

Lecture abstract

The talk describes biomorphic transformation as a completely new approach for fabrication of functional bioceramics. It is based on heterogeneous reactions established on a natural wood selected for its bone-mimicking 3-D architecture, to control the formation and growth of biomimetic apatites directly in the form of 3-D porous scaffolds with multi-scale hierarchy. Thanks to its unique biomimetic features the final scaffold exhibits outstanding biologic and mechanical performance, well surpassing the “classical” bioceramics obtained by sintering. This opens to frontier applications in the regeneration of large load-bearing bones, a still unmet clinical need.

Expert in innovation, business development and internationalization, lecturer in some business schools, he is passionate about biomedicine and technology. In his free time he is also researcher at the Biopathology and Regenerative Medicine Institute (IBIMER). 

Lecture abstract

New advances in stem cell (SC) research for the regeneration of tissue injuries have opened a new promising research field. However, research carried out nowadays with two-dimensional (2D) cell cultures do not provide the expected results, as 2D cultures do not mimic the 3D structure of a living tissue. 

Some of the commonly used polymers for cartilage regeneration are Poly-lactic acid (PLA) and its derivates as Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), Poly(glycolic acids) (PGAs) and derivates as Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acids) (PLGAs) and Poly caprolactone (PCL). All these materials can be printed using fused deposition modelling (FDM), a process in which a heated nozzle melt a thermoplastic filament and deposit it in a surface, drawing the outline and the internal filling of every layer. All this procedures uses melting temperatures that decrease viability and cell survival.

We have developed an enhanced printing processes-Injection Volume Filling (IVF)- to increase the viability and survival of the cells when working with high temperature thermoplastics without the limitation of the geometry. We have demonstrated the viability of the printing process using chondrocytes for cartilage regeneration. This development will accelerate the clinical uptake of the technology and overcomes the current limitation when using thermoplastics as scaffolds.

His work is focused on biomaterials and scaffold development, tissue engineering and regenerative therapies, mostly for musculoskeletal tissues. His group is also very active in the field of additive manufacturing of implants and biofabrication technologies (www.biofabrikation.de).

Lecture abstract

3D bioprinting has developed very fast in the last couple of years and several printing technologies as well as biomaterials, suitable for fabrication of cell containing constructs are available today. But one major problem still limits manufacturing of mechanically stable and macroscopic tissues. By means of extrusion-based 3D printing scaffolds and cell-loaded constructs can be fabricated easily. We have developed several pasty biomaterials based on biopolymer blends and polymer/mineral composites which can be utilized for extrusion-based printing and bioprinting with mammalian and non-mammalian cells. By extruding two different materials through a coaxial double needle strands with a core/shell morphology and 3D scaffolds thereof can be manufactured which allow for dual growth factor loading and release. Combining two or more materials in a layered fashion leads to complex constructs suitable for the treatment of defects at tissue interfaces.

Presently, as part of her doctoral studies, she conducts research on methodology of ceramics design in the field of innovative production processes, technology and material science and conscious creation of a product. She promotes kinetic arts in Poland and abroad.

Lecture abstract

So far associated with inherent brittleness, ceramics can now appear in a wider spectrum of practical applications. It is worth noting the opportunity to use digital technologies in designing and production of ceramics, both on a micro and macro scale. Owing to digital data recording it is possible to copy a pattern or modify the same quickly, which, in case of use of traditional technologies, is often impossible or restricted to a great extent. A 3D printer for ceramics gives an opportunity to create objects with characteristics of sound recorders or mathematical function course notations and, as a relatively new medium, it creates new perspectives in the field of formation of usable and artistic ceramic objects.

Lecture abstract

Digital Exchange is a long-standing collaboration between two high art schools, Studio of Sculpture 1 FFA BUT in Brno with the School of Visual Arts in New York. The project focuses on the discipline of digital sculpture. The content of the project is from the beginning of the use of digital technologies in the field of sculpture, namely the use of easy transfer of sculptures in data. There have been two digital exchanges in the past, students from the Czech Republic have sent their data to the US and vice versa, the data has been materialized on both sides by 3D printers and exposed. On both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, there were identical exhibitions of artefacts that physically did not meet each other. The current third exchange is focused on cooperative work this time. Students work together on one work. It is an experiment in the field of digital sculpture, as well as in the field of art at all.

KEYNOTE: Differentiation and Bone Deposition of Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells on Additive Manufactured Porous Ti-6Al-4V Scaffolds

Jan Torgersen

Speaker position

Associate Professor at Norwegian University of Science and Technology - Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

Speaker bio

After his PostDoc at the Nanoscale Prototyping Laboratory at Stanford University, Jan Torgersen recently started his own laboratory at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He focusses on material design across multiple length scale, in which additive manufacturing technologies play an integral part. He has expertise in thin film technologies, in particular, atomic layer deposition that he employed for high-k perovskite dielectrics deposited on high aspect ratio structures in next generation charge storage devices. He received his PhD from Vienna University of Technology, where he developed several 3D printing technologies and biocompatible materials. In particular, he worked on biocompatible hydrogels and experimental setups for high resolution, high speed two photon lithography. In this research, biocompatible scaffolds were dynamically tuned in the presence of living cells and organisms to create dynamic cell culture scaffolds.
Torgersen’s current research interests are multi scale topology and hierarchical optimization of additive manufactured components and conformal surface functionalization to tune the interplay with the parts surrounding. He is involved in several projects around tissue engineering, complex automotive parts and fundamental structure property evaluation and prediction. 

Lecture abstract

The number of arthroplasty surgeries, or joint replacing surgeries, being performed each year is increasing worldwide. Today, massive metal implants are commonly used. These are capable of causing an onset of stress shielding, lying at the basis of osteopenia: a painful condition where the bone in contact with the implant disappears, causing numerous costly and painful resurgeries. Utilizing additive manufacturing (AM) in the production of implants, porous structures can be manufactured from biocompatible materials which allows to tune the stiffness characteristics of the implant reducing the onset of osteopenia by material design. Yet another factor determines the feasibility of implants. Cells are influenced into osteoblast differentiation by the sole action of the surrounding implant structure. This means that osteoblast precursors, i.e. bone marrow derived stromal cells (BMSCs), are influenced by the typical surface roughness and porosity of AM parts. Having the knowledge on how surface topography induces cell fate is key to the fabrication of next generation implants.

In this work, we explore the osteoconductive and the osteoinductive traits of additive manufactured Ti-6Al-4V porous structures. A porous scaffold that was seeded with bone BMSCs to conduct a selection of in vitro studies. The seeded scaffolds were cultured in osteogenic medium (OM) and in non-osteogenic growth medium (GM) before the BMSC differentiation was assessed by a variety of experiments: Adhesion of cells cultured in GM showed a widely spread cell morphology, when characterised by confocal microscopy. The amount of adhered cells seemed to increase over the course of 48 hours. AlamarBlue® staining showed a BMSC activity increment within the first five days of culturing in OM. This trend was also observed by BMSCs cultured in GM, as the activity level caught up to the OM cultured cells by day 9. Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) staining at day 10 showed an extensive ALP expression by OM cultured cells and partial staining of GM cultured cells, suggesting the onset of BMSC differentiation into osteoblasts. Experiments using real-time PCR analysis showed a slight upregulation of RUNX2 and osteocalcin after 21 day of culture, possibly suggesting an onset of differentiation. Alizarin red staining provided indications of mineralisation for BMSCs cultured in both mediums, although more mineralisation was found in OM cultured cells. This finding show that scaffolds are found to have good osteoconductive properties, but moderate osteoinductive tendencies.

With this study we aim to set the foundation for understanding surface topography effects on BMSC differentiation in 3D porous scaffolds that may lead to a new area of future implant design, not only considering integration of this constructs in the natural surrounding but also how they affect cell fate, i.e. the healing of surrounding tissue.

2D-3D-4D - Forming of Human Liver Tissue in Vitro

Judit Pongrácz

full professor, head of department at University of Pécs

Lecture abstract

The liver is the only human internal organ capable of natural regeneration. The liver's highly specialised tissue consisting of mostly hepatocytes regulates a wide variety of high-volume biochemical reactions including detoxification. Hepatocytes that are routinely used for toxicity testing in the pharma industry, are short lived in traditional 2D cultures. In 3D they live much longer and capable to increase the size of the tissue and functionally behave more like the human liver. Gene expression analysis using an Affimetryx array provides a glimpse of changes triggered by 2D-3D cell culture conditions and cellular composition. And time (4D) is of the essence.

The industrial growth at the end of the last century couldn’t be achieved without the industrial robots. The development of the technology helped the widespread of the robots not only in the industry but in other domains too. According this fact the medical use of the robots must be considered as well. This paper will present the possibilities of the robot implementation in different medical acts: it can be present in the medical care, in the investigation phases and even in surgical intervention. The direct use of robots in the mentioned medical acts is extended by the activities performed by them in the supporting actions (ex. 3D printing) needed for a more successful medical performance.

Currently the preoperative planning of heart interventional and or surgical cardiac procedures includes techniques as computer tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)and or Echocardiography among other techniques. Using printed 3D-Models can render the understanding and visualization of the patients’ anatomy an easier more precise task, where the surgeon can not only have a life size anatomical presentation in hand but also facilitates the explanation to the patients of the procedure of complicated operations. As a proof of concept, we fabricated life-like models using Medical rapid prototyping (MRP) and data from CT and MRI. Using the technology on variety of complicated cases proved very helpful for patient-specific operation planning and follow up.

3D-Printed Transparent Facemask for Children with Facial Hypertrophic Scars

Yating Wei

Speaker position

PhD Student at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Speaker bio

Dr. Wei graduated from West China School of Medicine, Sichuan University in 2010. She is currently a burn surgeon by training, and she is also doing a PhD study at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University with a research project focusing on burn rehabilitation and scar management. Through 3D scanning and 3D printing techniques, Dr. Wei developed the 3D-printed transparent facemask which is more effective and convenient than traditional pressure garment on facial hypertrophic scar management.

Lecture abstract

Introduction:

Facial hypertrophic scar after burn injury is a serious complication which can lead to facial deformation. It severely affects the physical and psychological development of the pediatric burn patients. Pressure therapy and silicone gel are commonly used rehabilitation strategies for the prevention and treatment of facial hypertrophic scars. Transparent facemask has been used as a form of pressure therapy to manage facial hypertrophic scars for decades, however, traditional fabrication method is difficult to use on pediatric patients since it involves multiple molding steps which is intolerable for young children and it is inconvenient to apply. With the advancement of 3D scanning and 3D printing technology, we developed 3D-printed transparent facemask with silicone linings and investigated its biomechanical features, as well as the clinical efficacy on pediatric burn patients.
Method:
The facial contours of the pediatric patients with facial burns were scanned with a portable 3D scanner as soon as their wound healing time exceeds 21 days, which was considered as a critical time limit for developing hypertrophic scars. The scanned 3D file was processed with CAD software to produce the STL file of the customized facemask for 3D-printing. The design of the facemask should follow the biomechanical principles demonstrated in the biomechanical study, which showed that the facial areas with bony structures underneath undertook higher compression pressure while facial areas with more soft tissues bore lower pressure. Therefore, contour modification was made accordingly to balance the pressure distribution. The transparent facemask was printed out with transparent and biocompatible material. Subsequently, medical grade silicone gel was lined on the inside surface of the mask. The facemasks were fitted on the pediatric patients’ faces with elastic straps connecting the printed anchoring bolts at the outer surface of the facemasks. Additional silicone gel could be added on areas with insufficient blanching of the scars. The 3D-printed facemask needs to be worn for at least 20 hours per day, for at least 6 months until the scar matures. Monthly follow-up is needed to adjust the facemask pressure. 
Results:
We followed 3 children being treated with the 3D-printed transparent facemasks for 6 months. The treatment was well-tolerated and no complication was reported. At the one-month and three-month follow-ups after treatment, a decrease of scar thickness and redness was observed and the facial appearance was satisfactory with no significant facial deformation. At 6 month after injury, some of the scars were matured and most scars are on the process of maturation. The pediatric patients were psychologically comfortable with the wearing of the facemasks and were actively involved in daily social activities during the treatment process.
Conclusion:
Our newly developed 3D-printed transparent facemask with silicone linings is convenient and efficient to fabricate, easy to apply on pediatric patients. It is effective in the prevention and treatment of facial hypertrophic scars after burns in pediatric patients with satisfying clinical outcomes. Successful rehabilitation of pediatric facial burns needs the cooperation of the children themselves, their families and the whole society. Their acceptance and adherence of the treatment is the key to success.

3 years ago while participating an exhibition he has become touched by the spirit of the global e-NABLE community and became a member. Soon he has started to work with Joe Cross, the founder of the Hungarian community. He could use his IT skills in 3D printing and creating prosthetcs for kids.
So far he has made great efforts to help operating the hungarian organisation - the e-NABLE Hungary has already handed over 15 prosthetic hands.

Lecture abstract

The e-NABLE Community is a group of individuals from all over the world who are using their 3D printers to create free 3D printed hands and arms for those in need of an upper limb assistive device.
They are people who have put aside their political, religious, cultural and personal differences – to come together and collaborate on ways to help improve the open source 3D printable designs for hands and arms for those who were born missing fingers or who have lost them due to war, disease or natural disaster.
The e-NABLE Community is made up of teachers, students, engineers, scientists, medical professionals, tinkerers, designers, parents, children, scout troops, artists, philanthropists, dreamers, coders, makers and every day people who just want to make a difference and help to “Give The World A Helping Hand.”

The Hungarian group started to operate in 2014 giving the possibility to make this community more known, especially in the region of central Europe. 
Following the fundamentals of the mother community, e-NABLE Hungary wishes to meet the local requirements and fit to the local needs. Those who need help can be supported in their own language by us. And also teamwork for certain projects appears to be more successful and fruitful with more personal involvement. 
Since 2014 we have successfully delivered more than five hands and two arms to children in Hungary.
Joe Cross, the founder of the Hungarian group could deliver hands to Ghana in February 2016. These hands were made by Hungarian volunteers in order to help children in Ghana.
We are continuously looking for an opportunity to find recipients in Hungary. Fortunately nowadays we get more and more publicity. The e-Nable Hungary soon will be formed to an official organization. Our most important goal is to connect those who wish to help with those who need help. Also we would like to be the source of knowledge to make and develop 3D printable prosthetics.

Lecture abstract

3D Depth sensors are increasingly becoming compact and robust with the miniaturization of the optical and electronic components. 3D depth sensing has created a greater degree of interest in various applications including gaming, free-view point imaging, autostereoscopic displays, light-field imaging, AR and VR. However, viability of depth sensors for medical imaging applications has not been properly reviewed. Depth sensors allow automatic acquisition of valuable data for disease screening and monitoring, e.g., assessment of patient posture and movement. Depth data also enables 3D reconstruction of patient models for computer-assisted surgery. In this talk, I will introduce the depth sensing technologies at Zinemath and show the potential of these techniques in medical applications.

Lecture abstract

Cartilage is a dense connective tissue with limited selfrepair properties. Currently, the therapeutic use of autologous or allogenic chondrocytes makes up an alternative therapy to the pharmacological treatment. The design of a bioprinted 3D cartilage with chondrocytes and biodegradable biomaterials offers a new therapeutic alternative able of bridging the limitations of current therapies in the field. We have developed an enhanced printing processes-Injection Volume Filling (IVF) to increase the viability and survival of the cells when working with high temperature thermoplastics without the limitation of the scaffold geometry in contact with cells. We have demonstrated the viability of the printing process using chondrocytes for cartilage regeneration. An alginate-based hydrogel combined with human chondrocytes (isolated from osteoarthritis patients) was formulated as bioink-A and the polylactic acid as bioink-B. The bioprinting process was carried out with the REGEMAT V1 bioprinter (Regemat 3D, Granada-Spain) through a IVF. The printing capacity of the bioprinting plus the viability and cell proliferation of bioprinted chondrociytes was evaluated after five weeks by confocal microscopy and Alamar Blue Assay (Biorad). Results showed that the IVF process does not decrease the cell viability of the chondrocytes during the printing process as the cells do not have contact with the thermoplastic at elevated temperatures. The viability and cellular proliferation of the bioprinted artificial 3D cartilage increased after 5 weeks. In conclusion, this study demonstrates the potential use of Regemat V1 for 3D bioprinting of cartilage and the viability of bioprinted chondrocytes in the scaffolds for application in regenerative medicine.

Lecture abstract

Thymic aging occurs in every person, although at different pace. Thymic aging significantly increases the incidence of infections, cancer and autoimmune diseases. Some external factors may increase thymic aging. Thymic biological age may be more advanced than chronological age due to certain chemicals (copper-chelators), hormones (androgens), infections (viruses, fungi, protozoa). Our current goal is to optimize a protocol that allows for the establishment of functional, personalized thymus, starting from peripheral blood. This would provide a valuable tool for immunological research, and also to compensate lacking thymic function, preventing the above diseases.

Lecture abstract

3D imaging of bulk and surface structural properties of semiconducting materials and their composites was performed by micro-Raman scanning microscopy: i) Raman signals detected near the (001) surface of GaAs were applied to model the unexpected temperature-dependence of excess arsenic content obtained during low-temperature growth of GaAs crystals. ii) Low-frequency vibrations of carbon nanotubes coupled with in-plane vibration of wall carbon rings were identified as source of representative Raman signal to reflect surface coverage of semiconductor surfaces by carbon nanostructures. This information was applied for characterization of structured composites formed at nanometer scale by carbon nanotubes or graphene with wide-band-gap CeO2 and ZnO semiconductors. iii) Preliminary 3D scanning was taken to determine the distribution of some bioactive compounds in large living cells with micrometer resolutions.

Lecture abstract

The field of application is rapidly growing nowadays in the case of additive manufacturing in healthcare. Application of surgical guides are mostly confined to planning in static environment. Working on dynamically changing tissues like myocardium -where functional outcome mostly depend on the planning approach- lack the experience and the right method.

Left ventricular aneurysm occur as a result of myocardial infarction causing impaired left ventricular function, arrhythmia and valvular dysfunction, which can be managed by surgical ventricular restoration of aneurysms. Utilizing additive manufacturing we created a patient-specific model of the heart and guides for patch sizing and orientation, moreover multi-modality method was applied for accurate planning of left ventricular and valvular functional outcome. Planning the surgical guides according to the virtual assessment method was feasible for functional designing in the case of left ventricular restoration.

Lecture abstract

Additive manufacturing approaches have expanded the design space for devices fabricated from plastics and composite materials, and recently, have also shown great promise for creating customized systems which contain integrated and hierarchical biological functionality. In parallel, clinical evidence suggests that mimicking the properties of native tissue within artificial scaffold design using appropriate physical and biochemical cues, referred to as biomimicry, has the potential to control biological outcome, such as eliciting a desired regenerative response. Uniting design and fabrication techniques via advanced manufacturing technologies could enhance traditional tissue and device engineering approaches, thus enabling new translational and fundamental research opportunities. In this talk, I will discuss newly developed additive manufacturing approaches for the design and fabrication of nerve regeneration technology based on a combination of structured-light scanning and 3D printing techniques.

During his university years he was already attracted by the most exciting geometries of contemporary design; the organic, algorithm-based, parametric models. This passion led him towards the technology that makes it possible to manufacture those intricate forms: 3D printing. His enthusiasm turned him into the expert of parametric design and 3D technologies. He’s founded and led several companies (Gigamax3D, parametric art) and joined the team of FreeDee Printing Solutions lin 2015, where he works as a CTO and Head of 3D Academy giving lectures in 3D printing, modeling and scanning.

Lecture abstract

If you want to benefit from additive manufacturing technologies and bespoke fabrication in the medical sector, it’s a common misbelief that you need to invest a huge amount of money or study complex technological procedures for months. Owing to the fast-paced development of 3D technologies a great deal of the medical applications from dentistry to surgery can now be fulfilled with affordable and high-quality desktop 3D printers. These machines aren’t toys anymore nor they are developed to manufacture toys: they have a significant role in the future of personalized healthcare.

The focus of the lecture will be the most common medical applications of affordable 3D printing technologies for bespoke healthcare solutions. Peter will present several Hungarian case studies to demonstrate how our desktop 3D printers supported local healthcare projects.

authors: Tamás Storcz, Géza Várady

Depth perception in machine vision and image processing is a key feature, which is under strong development. Most of the applications require better and better spatial resolution for depth images, although, there are fields, where speed is more relevant than accuracy. Such an application can be the real-time navigation of drones or other robotic vehicles. There are different types of sensors on the market, which aim the fast and accurate depth perception for such applications. Most of them utilize active techniques, where some signals have to be sent out and read back for measuring distance in the given direction. Such techniques involve ultra-sonic waves or infra-light or laser lights at different wavelengths. These active techniques need expensive devices, extra power, extra sensors and active parts possibly interfering with the environment, are slower and have limitations based on the used active components (Eg. sun light against IR sensors). All these requirements endure the strongly limited battery capacities of drones and autonomous vehicles.
Most of such vehicles are carrying one or more cameras by default. Using that or these cameras onboard, also for depth estimation, could save energy and weight, both very important for longer operation. These method is also cheaper and faster. Using mono methods, based on image focus and binocular methods as stereo vision can provide basic depth estimation, what could be sufficient for fast decisions in directional progress. Combining the low resolution mono methods and the more complex stereo methods could result in a cheap and fast depth estimation.
The presentation will show the possibilities, potential subsidiary advantages and preliminary results of such camera arrangements.

Lecture abstract

In order to correct limb deformity, custom assistive devices must be created. During the production of these devices mainly traditional techniques are used. The shape of the device is created manually, on the basis of photo snapshots, plaster casts or vacuum bed samples.

Using CAD technology and 3D printing these techniques can be succeeded by more accurate and faster methods. Recently such 3D cameras have 
appeared that are cheap and small enough to be placed into mobile phones, tablets or laptops. By means of the new technology the whole 
process of the design and creation of assistive devices can be performed by a single handheld tool and a 3D printer. Our research project is addressed to examine the possibilities of this change of technology.
