core tip: imagine what it would be like if the 3D printer could directly 3D print human skin, and this skin could be used for transplantation or as a model for sorting, crushing and cleaning waste plastics of new products? It is understood that there is at least one research project whose goal is to turn the above assumption into reality. Skinnresqu is a skin research center jointly established by the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of technology in Sweden. The center is currently carrying out this interdisciplinary project

[China Packaging News] imagine what it would be like if a 3D printer could directly 3D print human skin, and this skin could be used for transplantation or as a model for testing new products? It is understood that there is at least one research project, and its food and beverage packaging will be the largest biodegradable plastic. The main utilization field goal is to turn the above assumption into a reality of the interruption and size change of the current load. Skinresque is a skin research center jointly established by the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of technology in Sweden. Although the development of friction and wear testing machine has been greatly developed, the center is currently carrying out this interdisciplinary project

Paul gatenholm, Professor of biopolymer technology, who is also an expert in 3D bioprinting, was in charge of the project. Not long ago, he applied for a research fund from the Swedish Innovation Agency (vinnova) for the first stage research competition type innovation funding project and was approved

the background of this project is that with the aggravation of aging, people increasingly need more test models for the research and treatment of skin related diseases (especially skin cancer). So far, the growth rate of skin cancer patients has exceeded that of any other forms of cancer, with more than 35000 new skin cancer patients every year. In addition, chronic wounds caused by diabetes will affect about 50000 to 80000 patients every year, causing great pain. " Said Marica Ericson, director of skinresqu. And such diseases have the greatest impact on the elderly

at present, doctors and scientists mainly use animal skin, synthetic skin or skin donated by people to study and treat such diseases or develop new products. However, the supply of these models is not sufficient. Since 2013, the laws of many countries have prohibited animal experiments for the purpose of beauty. Moreover, due to the great differences between human and animal skin, the research results are not satisfactory. In addition, skin transplants - such as those for burn patients - are often complex and painful, requiring careful care. If biological materials and human cells can be used to realize 3D printing of human tissues, it will be of great significance for the treatment in this regard

the research project will bring together professional forces from academia and Industry: Chalmers University of technology, Gothenburg University, plastic surgery department of Sahlgrenska University Hospital, SCA, Oriflame, Fraunhofer, medibiome and aptab (a biomaterial alliance in northern Europe) have all participated in it. In the future, the team will further absorb more research members

in this project, skinresque's role is to help establish a network related to skin research and provide corresponding knowledge. "We will also play a central coordinating role. In addition, we will organize an international research conference in November this year, which will bring together the world's leading researchers in this field." Ericson said

"we hope to develop a new technology through this project, which will eventually lead to the reduction of animal experiments during product testing and development. In addition, we also expect that this project will enable people to gain a new understanding of skin. This is a very exciting work." Marica Ericson concludes
