Sandra Ruiz Alonso, PhD student in NanoBioCel group (UPV-EHU), disseminates the TriAnkle Project among the audience attending the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) European Chapter Meeting 2023 through the scientific poster entitled “3D Printing Technology in tendon tissue regeneration: scaffolds for tissue reinforcement and growth factor delivery“.
This poster explains the incorporation of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) to the ink, the study of factor release and the activity of factor released in vitro, concepts that appear in the thesis project in which Sandra Ruiz works (“Development of bioinks and advanced therapy products based on 3D bioprinting for the regeneration of the Achilles tendon in rats“) and that are closely related to the TriAnkle project.
People interested in the TriAnkle Project had the opportunity to talk about the use of growth factors in the structures obtained by 3D printing, the mechanical properties of the hydrogels used, the development of nanoparticles that allow a much more controlled release of growth factors, as well as the development of bioreactors that allow mechanobiological characterisation of tendon and cartilage tissues.
The Termis congress is one of the most important tissue engineering conferences in Europe. It presents the latest research in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, offering researchers, clinicians and industry a unique opportunity to present and discuss their latest developments and challenges in the field.

3D printing technology consists in printing products layer by layer, depositing the materials according to the digital model designed by the computer design software. One
