Bioforge research group from the University of Valladolid (UVA) is involved within the Horizon 2020 program together with other German, Austrian, Greek and Dutch colleagues for the development of new hydrogels containing specific properties.

The development is focussed into the creation of sensitive hydrogels for the diagnosis and therapies in the biomedicl field. This kind of hydrogels contains high amount of water and are composed of molecular networks surrounded by pores that confers them high elasticity and strenght.

The TERMIS-EU SYIS Debate Competition has been launched for the first time during the TERMIS-EU 2017 that took place in Davos (Switzerland) the last 26 – 30 June. The topic of the Debate was “Will 3D-Printing or Decellularised organs rescue the donor-based organ scarcity for transplantation?”

The team composed by Daniela Pacheco from Portugal, PhD candidate in Materials Engineering at Polytechnic of Milan (Italy); Sebastião van Uden from Portugal, PhD candidate at Bioengineering Laboratories “BEL” (Italy); and Filippo Cipriani from Italy, PhD candidate at Technical Proteins NanoBiotechnology “TPNBT” (Spain) won the debate for the 3D printing motion.

The Scientific debate has been such an intense, brilliant, unordinary brainstorming. Filippo, Daniela and Sebastião would like to thank the TERMIS – SYIS council for this amazing opportunity.
