U.S. Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS) showcasing Brinter’s poster

August 14–17, 2023

Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, Kissimmee, FL.

Brinter’s top-of-art research related Advances in Regenerative Medicine for the Treatment of Neuromusculoskeletal Injuries from Point of Injury to Definitive Care and Beyond.

3D bioprinting provides a solution to cartilage repair as it allows a combination of different cells and materials to be bioprinted into a personalized biomimetic cartilage construct. Cartilage is an avascular, flexible connective tissue found throughout the human body, providing support and cushion to surrounding cells. Due to the lack of blood supply and vasculature, cartilage tissue strictly relies on nutrient diffusion and is very slow to heal compared to other tissues, like bone.

Damage to cartilage repair is often non-reversible and can lead to complications that require immediate medical attention. One of the novel approaches for cartilage repair is 3D extrusion bioprinting which enables the simultaneous deposition of cells (i.e., chondrocytes, mesenchymal stem cells) and biocompatible materials (i.e., collagen I/II, hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate) to print personalized living cartilage structures layer by layer. Brinter provides a modular and easy-to-use bioprinting platform with technology that allow for mixing on-the-fly, excellent accuracy, and cleanliness.

With advances in regenerative medicine and 3D bioprinting, the Brinter team is developing a personalized and more bio-mimetic implant to repair damaged medical meniscus tissue.

At this year’s MHSRS Symposium, we are excited to share our pre-clinical findings to date and meet like-minded individuals who are equally passionate about finding innovative solutions to musculoskeletal injuries.

About MHSRS: 

The MHSRS is the Department of Defense’s foremost scientific meeting. It provides a venue for presenting new scientific knowledge resulting from military-unique research and development. The MHSRS is the premier military or civilian meeting that focuses specifically on the unique medical needs of the Warfighter.

The MHSRS provides a collaborative setting for the exchange of information between military providers with deployment experience, research and academic scientists, international partners, and industry on research and related health care initiatives falling under the topic areas of Combat Casualty Care, Military Operational Medicine, Clinical and Rehabilitative Medicine, Medical Simulation and Information Sciences, Military Infectious Diseases, and the Radiation Health Effects.

The MHSRS is an annual four-day educational symposium that draws approximately 3,500 attendees.
