3rd CIRP Conference on BioManufacturing 2017

July 11-14, Chicago, IL, U.S.

Conference scope


Biomanufacturing, defined as the design, fabrication, assembly and measurement of bio-elements into structures, devices, and systems, and their interfacing and integration into/with larger scale structures in vivo or in vitro, is an emergent domain integrating life science and engineering principles.

CIRP, the World Academy for Production Engineering, plays a key role in this area promoting multidisciplinary research towards the development of medical and welfare devices and systems for improving quality of life and reducing global healthcare costs.

The CIRP-Biomanufacturing conference was designed to be an international forum to discuss progress and future directions, and revise milestones as necessary, to facilitate exchange of information on biodesign, biofabrication and biomechatronics.

Plenary Speakers

Professor X. Jane Jiang, Professor Jennifer A. Lewis, Professor Chad A. Mirkin, Professor John A. Rogers, and Professor Fumihito Arai
