Biomanufacturing, defined as the design, fabrication, assembly and measurement of bio-elements into structures, devices, and systems, and their interfacing and integration into/with larger scale structures in vivo or in vitro, is an emergent domain integrating life science and engineering principles.
CIRP, the World Academy for Production Engineering, plays a key role in this area promoting multidisciplinary research towards the development of medical and welfare devices and systems for improving quality of life and reducing global healthcare costs.
The CIRP-BioManufacturing conference (CIRP-BioM) is designed to be an international forum to discuss progress and future directions in biomanufacturing, and to facilitate the exchange of information on bio-inspired design, bio-fabrication, and bio-mechatronics. This Hong Kong and Guangzhou conference is preceded by the 1st CIRP-BioM in Tokyo (2013), the 2nd in Manchester (2015) and the 3rd in Chicago (2017).
The conference focuses on , including but not limited to:
