3D printing of photocurable materials, bioinks, and hydrogels
Technology:Researchers in the Burdick lab have developed a method for 3D printing photocurable materials without the need for highly viscous inks or other stabilizing components to maintain the integrity of printed structures. This strategy allows for cross-linking of material during the printing process, whereas previous approaches utilize pre-crosslinking...

Three dimensional printing of supramolecular hydrogels
Technology Overview: The Burdick Lab has developed a new method of printing 3D structures using supramolecular hydrogels. These gels are both shear-thinning and rapidly self-healing. The shear-thinning feature allows for the material in gel or solid form to be forced through a channel (as in a needle), causing bond dissociation and thus allowing...
