Development of a holistic additive-manufacturing technology Plattform for Melt Electrospinning

Prof. Dr. Dietmar W. Hutmacher
Prof. Dr. Axel Haase

Start of PhD-work at GSISH:
May 2014

Project Description:
Melt electrospinning refers to electrostatically drawing viscous polymers liquids in a fused state, which allows the production of nano-scaled fibres as a basis for the design of highly-porous and well-ordered scaffolds.
In the field of tissue engineering these structured fibre “meshes" mimic the extracellular matrix and provide a spatial micro-environment for promoting significantly enhanced cell growths.
The innovative technology triggers a paradigm shift in scaffold manufacturing and stands out for a promising contribution to the future of tissue engineering applications.
However, a transfer from bench to bedside still lacks feasibility. The technical challenge is seen in the complexity of the multi-parametric process; the stumbling block from an economic perspective is the comparatively low-throughput, contemporary preventing broader clinical applications.
My research aims at fostering precision and accuracy to accomplish a highly automated and up-scaled production of scaffolds. Systematic product development methodologies will meet all multidisciplinary requirements and generate a Technology Platform to address the surge of industrial demand.
