The 2018 International Symposium on Biofabrication in Space, organized by the Laboratory for Biotechnological Research of 3D BIOPRINTING SOLUTIONS, Russian State Space Corporation ROSCOSMOS and SKOLKOVO FOUNDATION will be held in Skolkovo, Russia on 11 April, 2018.
The aim of the symposium is to discuss the current state and prospects for the development of new biofabrication technologies and the possibility of their use in space.
A fundamentally new approach to bioprinting called “formative production” is possible to enable in microgravity conditions. The bioprinters developed for carrying out such experiments will allow creating various organ constructs, including those sensitive to radiation, for assessing the adverse effect of cosmic radiation on the health of astronauts in the missions to the Moon and Mars. The symposium will be attended by leading foreign and Russian experts in the field of experiments in space and biofabrication.
