Kom til konference om 3D, som er så meget mere end printere. Vi sætter fokus på emnet den 29. september 2017! Tilmeld dig her.

3D printing of bacteria for sustainable, patterned materials production: how to build a lunar habitat

Keynote: Dr. Anne S. Meyer, Assistant Professor at TU Delft, is developing inexpensive, DIY 3D printers that can deposit bacteria within a nourishing matrix to fabricate spatially patterned materials in an environmentally friendly manner.
3D printing of bacteria for sustainable, patterned materials production: how to build a lunar habitat

The Meyer lab is developing the first steps toward the 3D printing of bacterial cultures for sustainable and personally tailored materials production. The DIY bacterial 3D printers are inexpensive and straightforward to use. Bacteria are deposited at millimeter resolution within a supportive, nourishing scaffold that provides nutrients as well as stable spatial restriction. The printed bacteria are able to produce a variety of desirable materials, representing a cost-effective way to fabricate materials in diverse environments including space colonization.

Dr. Anne S. Meyer uses tools of synthetic biology to engineer novel functions into microorganisms, with a focus on the production of high-performance materials.
