09 Mar 2023
The Ateneo Research Institute of Science and Engineering (ARISE) is happy to share with the public the establishment of a collaboration between the Ateneo de Manila University and the Vellore Institute of Technology on the research titled "AI-assisted Strategy for 3D-printed Ceramic-Clay and Polymer-Nanoclay Composite Scaffolds Towards Cost-Effective Bone Tissue Repair." The project is funded jointly by the Department of Science and Technology Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD) and the Ateneo de Manila University Research Council for the period September 1, 2021 - August 31, 2023 (subject to annual review). The project, led by Dr. Erwin P. Enriquez of the Department of Chemistry, is composed of a highly multidisciplinary team of experts across two countries to work on a confluence of 4IR technologies: nanobiotechnology, additive manufacturing (3D printing), and AI machine learning to design and fabricate tissue scaffolds for potential use in bone tissue repair.
