“3D printing provides optimized scaffold properties with complex morphologies for novel regenerative medicine purposes”
Dan Jing Wu received her bachelor degree in biomedical engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). During her bachelor she studied a semester abroad at the Queen Mary University London to expand her knowledge in the biomedical engineering field and performed her bachelor thesis at Xilloc Medical B.V. where she focused on the cutting accuracy of an optimized 3D-printed surgical guide. She started with a master degree in the biomedical chemistry group of prof. Bert Meijer and dr. dr. Patricia Dankers. Moreover, she successfully finished the honours program “Netherlands Research School of Chemical Biology”. For her master thesis she initiated collaboration with the Catharina Hospital, in which she developed a sustained drug delivery system for Peritoneal Carcinomatosis using supramolecular polymers. Her final internship was performed in the group of prof. Dietmar Hutmacher at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia, where she investigated melt electrospun scaffolds for in vitro and in vivo biomedical applications.
Currently, Dan Jing is a PhD candidate in the group of dr. dr. Patricia Dankers. Her research aim is to investigate and develop supramolecular polymers to be applied for 3D printing of controlled complex structures for biomedical applications.
