报告摘要:

With the advance of 3D printing technology, engineered tissue constructs can be fabricated by combining cells, biomaterials and biologically active molecules to mimic nature tissues more precisely. Cells in engineered tissue constructs often experience mechanical forces/stimuli during the fabrication and maturation processes, and under in vivo conditions. It is well known that these mechanical forces/stimuli induce cellular responses and in turn affect cell viability, proliferation, and differentiation. Hence, it is critical to understand the mechanical microenvironment of cells in engineered tissue constructs during different processes. In this talk, I will introduce a multi-scale modeling and analysis method for determining the microenvironment that cells experience due to mechanical forces and predicting cell viability. Three case studies will be presented, including 3D printed tissue constructs under static compressive loading and cyclic stretching, and forces experienced by cells during the extruding based process. Remaining challenges will also be discussed.
