Biomanufacturing: ACBD-ISBM2021

The Science Partner Journal Cyborg and Bionic Systems is now considering submissions for the Special Issue on Biomanufacturing: ACBD-ISBM2021.

Scope

The 2021 Annual Conference for Society of Chinese Mechanical Engineering Biomanufacturing Division and the International Symposium on Bio-Manufacturing (ACBD-ISBM2021) will be held from December 4-6, 2021 in Beijing, China. This conference will bring together international experts to present the latest research and advances as well as the emerging applications in the field of Biomanufacturing.

Life sciences and biotechnology will lead a new technological revolution that will transform the social form and way of life of human beings. The discipline is also working tirelessly to improve the quality of human life as a manufacturing technology that is the foundation of social development. In the course of human life development, tissue and organ defects are one of the major hazards facing human health and have a large market space globally. With the development of bio-additive manufacturing technology, the replacement repair of human tissue and organ defects is expected to become possible in the future. In traditional manufacturing, we build a table or a chair, and the resulting object is lifeless. Biomanufacturing is an emerging cross-discipline formed after the intersection of traditional manufacturing disciplines and life materials, which creates things that are human-oriented and active, and artificial organs and tissues have made great progress in the past few years. Recent research has also focused on 3D printing of artificial bones, artificial organ tissues, and in vitro tissue and organ model construction. This special issue aims to provide an opportunity for researchers to contribute their latest research and developments in 3D printing of biomaterials, artificial organs, tissue engineering, and organ-on-a-chip. Topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Biomanufacturing and Regenerative Medicine
  • Bio-Bionic Manufacturing and Planting/Interventional Devices
  • Biosensor and flexible electronics manufacturing
  • Multi-scale biomimetic manufacturing
  • Micromanipulation and minimally invasive instruments
  • Biological Modeling and Bio-3D Printing
  • Tissue and Organ Chip
  • Innovative Medical Devices and Biomaterials
