From 1’st-3’rd of of May I had a chance to take part in 3D Challenge at Texas A&M Qatar, where I presented the principles of my project concerning 3D-printed heart valve scaffolds. The project’s presentation was distinguished for its scientific value and received a first place award.

The challenges successfully approached in the project are:

  • Designing and printing functional heart valve model that can be used for optimization of valve geometry before implantation to patient.
  • Using 3D printing to obtain hydrogel functional valve with unprecedented high resolution (superior to any other examples currently reported in literature)
  • Developing 3D printing mediated method for quick and reliable encapsulation of viable cells  and materials into complex geometries such heart valve.
