    Hello everyone,
    I am currently working in a project called, 3D Bio Printer.
    I need help with the preparation of bio-ink. I am currently in 4th semester of my undergraduate studies and i do not have a mentor yet.
    Is there anyone with experience in bio printing who could help me out ?

    Hi Nishchal, how are you? I hope you and your family are safe!

    I must congratulate the subject you chose to work with. I think it's really innovative and it's the future! I think it would be awesome if we could hear more about it in this thread, really!

    Unfortunately, I don't know anyone with experience in 3D Bio Printing. I extremely recommend that you search yourself a mentor: contact your professors, ask for possible contacts to your department chair and, if you don't find anything in your area, you should definetely try outside engineering. Talk with students/teachers from biomedicine, pharmacy, chemistry etc (I'm supposing your university has other majors besides engineering, but if it doesn't just forget this last part).

    As I don't know what's the speficities of your project, I did a general research on the topic and found some useful links (I hope) that might help you on this journey:

    I hope these can help you! Unfortunately I had to generalize as I don't know what you're exactly working on. I wish you the best of luck and success on this project!
