The May ASME Florida Section Virtual meeting at 7 pm on Thursday, May 20th will feature David Reed of Techshot Inc talking about their space experiments aboard the ISS. The Techshot 3D BioFabrication Facility (BFF) and the Techshot ADvanced Space Experiment Processor (ADSEP), together comprise the first-ever system capable of manufacturing human tissue in the microgravity condition of space. Utilizing adult human cells (such as pluripotent or stem cells), the system can create viable tissue in space through technology that enables it to precisely place and build ultra-fine layers of bioink – layers that may be several times smaller than the width of a human hair – involving the smallest print tips in existence. This research focused on a path to create human replacement organs. David Reed is the Launch Operations Director at Techshot. Prior to Techshot, he served over 20 years at NASA as science support specialist and payload engineer up through Payload Engineering Subject Matter Expert. He has a BSCE degree from Cornell and a Master's Degree in Biochemical Engineering from the University of Virginia. Join us for this event!
