Marcy Zenobi-Wong's Biography

Marcy Zenobi-Wong, Professor, ETH Zürich

Dr. Marcy Zenobi-Wong is an Associate Professor of Tissue Engineering and Biofabrication at ETH Zürich, Switzerland. She obtained her PhD from Stanford University and followed by a post-doctoral fellowship in the Orthopaedic Research Laboratories, University of Michigan. In 2012, she moved to the Department of Health Sciences & Technology at ETH Zürich. The Zenobi-Wong group is focused on the development of advanced biomaterials for tissue regeneration using biofabrication technologies including bioprinting, two-photon polymerization, casting and electrospinning. Dr. Zenobi-Wong is the author of over 75 peer-reviewed publications and co-inventor on four licensed patents. She is currently Vice President of the Swiss Society for Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine and general secretary for the International Society of Biofabrication (ISBF). She serves on the editorial board for Biofabrication and Advanced Healthcare Materials.

The challenge in tissue engineering of functional organs increases with the organ’s geometric complexity.  The function of ‘flat’ organs (cartilage, skin, cornea) are generally perceived to the simplest to recapitulate, followed by the tubular/hollow organs (vessels, bladder), with the solid organs (liver, kidney, pancreas) being the most difficult.  Flat organs are largely avascular and contain a limited number of cell types, whereas solid epithelial organs are composed of a complex, dense arborization of multiple parenchymal and stromal tissues. In this presentation, we concentrate on methods to augment the bioactivity of hydrogel systems through introduction of macroporous bioinks to enhance mass transport, cell viability and matrix deposition.   In addition, the pros and cons of print and non-print fabrication methods are discussed.
