3D Electrospinning - shaping the structure of tissue engineering scaffolds


Faculty of Engineering and Informatics

About the Project

Electrospinning applies a high voltage to a polymer solution to create fine fibres that form non-woven mats. These can be used as scaffolds for tissue engineering, acting as the extracellular matrix and supporting the cells. However, the structures are limited to simple sheets and tubes due to the nature of the process. This project will develop a 3D printing approach to control the shape of the scaffold as it is built up, allowing more complex tissue engineering structures to be created. This has the potential to make new treatments possible and to greatly speed up production by focusing spun material on the area of interest.
