Dr. Aleksandr Ovsianikov
Vienna University of Technology, Austria
Aleksandr Ovsianikov is currently an Associate Professor at the TU Wien (Vienna, Austria) and a member of the Austrian Cluster for Tissue Regeneration. His research is dealing with the use of additive manufacturing technologies for tissue engineering and regeneration. Dr. Ovsianikov has background in laser physics and material processing with femtosecond lasers. A particular focus his current research is the development of multiphoton processing technologies for engineering of biomimetic 3D cell culture matrices and realization of novel tissue engineering scaffolds. He was awarded a prestigious Starting Grant in 2012 and a Consolidator Grant in 2017 from the European Research Council (ERC) for projects aimed at these topics. His research interests include high-resolution 3D printing, laser-induced photo-chemistry, development of biomaterials for additive manufacturing and bioprinting. Together with Prof. Mironov and Prof. Yoo he is aneditor of a living book project “3D Printing and Biofabrication” published by Springer incooperation with Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS).
