What can biofabrication do for space and what can space do for biofabrication?

Biofabrication in space is one of the novel promising and prospective research directions in the rapidly emerging field of space research. There are several advantages of biofabrication in space.

“Under microgravity, it is possible to engineer constructs using more fluidic channels and thus more biocompatible bioinks. Microgravity enables biofabrication of tissue and organ constructs of more complex geometries, thus facilitating novel scaffold-, label-, and nozzle-free technologies based on multi-levitation principles. However, when exposed to microgravity and cosmic radiation, biofabricated tissues could be used to study pathophysiological phenomena that will be useful on Earth and for deep space manned missions. Here, we provide leading concepts about the potential mutual benefits of the application of biofabrication technologies in space.”

Honoured to be listed among those giants authoring this latest review published in Trends in Biotechnology, together with L. Moroni, K. Tabury, D. Grimm & V. Mironov.
