DFG - Project: 3D-printed Drug-Delivery-Systems with controllable drug release

Goal of the project is the development of a Drug-Delivery-System with a controllable drug release. The DDS should make an implantbased, local release of Drugs and drug combinations with predetermined mechanisms possible. The production of the DDS requires a new 3D-printing process, which will combine the microstereolithography and the inkjet-technology. With this new procedure it will be possible to generate the base structure with microstereolithography and simultaneously place a drug/crosslinker mixture in specified depots with the inkjet-modules. Because of the separation it will be possible to variate the characteristics (like drug concentration) within the DDS. This leads to a controllable and predictable release of incorporated drugs.

The project is processed in cooperation with the Institute for Biomedical Engineering of the University of Rostock.
