3D Bio printing Demonstration

Australia looks forward to growing opportunities within the digital health sector by strengthening its existing relationship with the UAE, and forming new relationships beyond, through involvement in Expo 2020 Dubai with the Australian Pavilion. This Live demonstration of cutting-edge 3D bioprinting technology developed with world-leading clinicians at the Translational Research Initiative for Cell Engineering and Printing (TRICEP) is one to not miss.

The University of Wollongong has brought its 3-D bioprinting machine from Australia to Dubai and will host a public demonstration of 3-D bioprinting at the Mata Foyer during Expo Health and Wellness Week. The 3D Printers will be printing biomaterial simulants demonstrating the printer capability. 

Led by the University of Wollongong.


  1. Introduction to bioprinting and to TRICEP
  2. How does bioprinting work?
  3. Demonstration of 3-D bioprinting using machine that has been transported from Australia.
  4. The 3D Printers will be printing biomaterial simulants demonstrating the printer capability.

Already used on hundreds of patients who have lost limbs due to cancer, trauma or congenital defects, this is exciting technology which is driving innovation across the global health sector.

Distinguished Professor Gordon Wallace is directly involved with this event, he is an esteemed innovator and educator is a scientist at the forefront of health technologies, where medical devices complement the body’s own systems to treat disease and repair injuries. Professor Wallace is Executive Research Director of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science based at UOW; Director of UOW’s Intelligent Polymer Research Institute; and Director of the Australian National Fabrication Facility – Materials Node.

DATE: Friday, 11 February
