Do you know what is the main component of artificial skin that is already manufactured by 3D bioprinting in research laboratories? The answer is “hydrogel”. If you want to know more about these polymers, how they are used in the area of ​​tissue engineering and learn about other relevant issues about artificial skin, you can sign up for this talk and ask your questions. In addition, we will show how graphene can provide hydrogels with "intelligent" capabilities, giving them a multitude of applications, such as in the treatment of serious wounds of extensive burn patients.
