The company CELLINK supports the project BAMOS
The University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has installed the new Bioprinter BIOX with the support of the company CELLINK. This Bioprinter will enable to print multi materials such as biopolymers, hydrogels as well as blends with cells to produce scaffolds either for bone or cartilage.
Workshop of BAMOS project in TERM STEM /FORECAST 2017. 17th November. Porto, Portugal
As part of TERM STEM/FORECAST 2017 (http://www.termstem.org/), the BAMOS Workshop will take place on 17th of November 2017, at Dr. António Cupertino de Miranda Foundation, a congress centre located in the city of Porto, the second-largest city in Portugal. This Workshop is being organized as part of the H2020 European project Biomaterials and Additive Manufacturing: Osteochondral Scaffold (BAMOS) innovation applied to osteoarthritis. The chairs of this workshop are: Rui L. Reis, Joaquim Miguel Oliveira and Mario Monzón.

Presentation of BAMOS project in the International Conference of Sustainable Materials, Science and Technology. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. 19-21 July 2017
Kick-off of the European Project RISE BAMOS
The European project "BAMOS" - Biomaterials and Additive Manufacturing: Osteochondral Scaffold innovation applied to osteoarthritis (H2020-MSCA-RISE-2016-734156) has been launched on January, coordinated by the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) and funded under the Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) action (H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions).
This project, framed within the field of biofabrication and additive manufacturing (3D printing), faces the challenge of developing innovative osteochondral scaffold technology for the early intervention of osteoarthritis, avoiding or delaying joint replacement operations. Osteoarthritis is a frequent problem in the population older than 70 years, typified by a loss of quality of cartilage and changes in the bone structure at the interface of a joint.
