Bio-inspired biofabrication in cardiovascular tissue engineering

March 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Co-sponsored by: IEEE QUT Student Branch Valvular heart disease caused by stenosis, regurgitation or congenital defects are the worldwide third leading contributor to cardiovascular disease resulting in more than 5 million deaths annually. Tissue Engineered Heart Valves (TEHVs) aim to overcome the disadvantages of current heart valve prosthesis by providing an alternative mechanically stable valve that also supports tissue growth and remodelling. Additionally, heart valves are characterized to be highly flexible yet tough, and exhibit complex deformation characteristics such as…
