An interview with Heon Ju Lee on ROCKIT Healthcare’s novel bioprinting treatment for dermal scarring

Authors
Heon Ju Lee
Abstract
In this exclusive interview, Heon Ju Lee discusses ROCKIT healthcare’s novel bioprinting technique used to treat patients with dermal scarring. This interview was conducted by Mike Gregg, Commissioning Editor of the Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine.Dr Heon Ju Lee is the Chief Technology Officer and Managing Director of ROKIT. He is developing the service platform technology for artificial organ regeneration and supervises the overseas business development for the propagation of such service platforms. The focus of these platforms, bringing bio 3D print-based medical therapies into the operating room, on tissues that are relatively easy to fabricate structurally with the current technology, this includes skin, cartilage, hair, retina and heart patch regeneration. Dr Lee has a PhD from MIT in mechanical engineering and has been working as a 3D/4D printing group leader at KIST.

The Arrival of Commercial Bioprinters – Towards 3D Bioprinting Revolution!

Authors
Deepak Choudhury*, Shivesh Anand, May Win Naing*
Abstract
The dawn of commercial bioprinting is rapidly advancing the tissue engineering field. In the past few years, new bioprinting approaches as well as novel bioinks formulations have emerged, enabling biological research groups to demonstrate the use of such technology to fabricate functional and relevant tissue models. In recent years, several companies have launched bioprinters pushing for early adoption and democratisation of bioprinting. This article reviews the progress in commercial bioprinting since the inception, with a particular focus on the comparison of different available printing technologies and important features of the individual technologies as well as various existing applications. Various challenges and potential design considerations for next generations of bioprinters are also discussed.
