She is a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (FIMMM)-UK; Associate Editor of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, Bio-Design and Manufacturing, and Microsystems & Nanoengineering. Shery completed her MEng degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Imperial College London, and PhD degree in Physics (Biological & Soft Systems) from University of Cambridge, UK.

Topic title: Multiscale Biofabrication through 3D(bio)printing, bioassembly, and fibre-of-things


The impact of technology on the life science and biomedical field has been truly remarkable. Whilst these innovations have direct health and economic benefits in the near and intermediate terms, current life science discovery and medical research development could be resource and carbon intensive, which are not sustainable in the long terms. This presentation will illustrate my group’s research work on three themes (i) organoid and tumoroid bioassembly; (ii) 3D printing of soft and biological materials; and (iii) fibre biofabrication for wearable sensors and bioelectronics. Enabled by these technological developments, I will show how fit-for-purpose design of 3D printed biomimetic models, when coupled with machine learning, can provide new ways of cost-effective and ethical clinical informatics. I will also discuss an outlook on how multiscale biofabrication can be harnessed to create more physiologically complete in vitro models, and to make sustainable and imperceptible bioelectronic interfaces for living systems.
