2020 IADR/AADR/CADR GENERAL SESSIONThe 98th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR was to be held in conjunction with the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 44th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from March 18-21, 2020 in Washington, D.C., USA. Due to COVID 19 and the world pandemic, the meeting had to be canceled, but we were able to collect some of the science that was planned for presentation to be available to our members as part of an on demand meeting.
The recordings in this library are a selection of the science that was to be presented onsite at the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, IADR Centennial Plenaries and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.
This session can be purchased as part of the full meeting recordings within the product bundles
SESSION DESCRIPTIONTissue engineering harnesses cutting edge cell and molecular biology and biomaterial science in order to regenerate lost or damaged parts of the body. A variety of tissue engineering approaches have been proposed for oral tissue regeneration, involving a combination of different cell types, bio-scaffolds and biologically active molecules. This symposium will explore novel oral tissue engineering approaches using 3D printing and biofunctionalization of scaffolds with growth factors and extracellular matrix. Polymer and metal based printing for custom scaffold production, as well as the utilization of bioinks for cell printing will be addressed. The feasibility of combining these approaches with established surgical techniques will be explored, and their potential for clinical utilisation in bone, periodontal and pulp regeneration will be critically evaluated.
Organizer/Chair: Sašo Ivanovski – The University of Queensland
Chair: P. Mark Bartold – University of Adelaide
- How can 3D printing be utilized to facilitate oral tissue regeneration?
- What are the attributes of 3D printing that make it suitable for regenerative dentistry?
- How can cells, growth factors and extracellular matrix be combined with 3D printing strategies to enhance regenerative outcomes?
