Bioprinting Winter School 2024 – From printing set-up to laboratory analysis


Bioprinting Winter School provides the basic principles related to 3D (bio)printing both from a theoretical and practical point of view.

Starting from main 3D printing techniques overview, we move on to the design of “on-demand” biomaterials, suitable for incorporating biological components, up to the characterization of 3D printed structures and the development of a cellular model.

The implementation of computational models to simulate processes related to 3D (bio)printing will also be presented.

The hands-on sessions (CAD design, stl export, slicing, bioprinting, characterization of the printed constructions, computational modeling) will help students to solve problems encountered during daily laboratory and research activities.


The course will be held at the University of Pavia, Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture in via Ferrata, 3 – Pavia.
