Michael Gelinsky, FBSE

Michael Gelinsky received his PhD in Chemistry from Freiburg University (Germany). In 1999 he moved to Dresden University of Technology (TU Dresden) and worked for around 10 years at the Department of Materials Science, heading his own group at the newly founded Max Bergmann Center of Biomaterials from 2002. In 2010 he was appointed Full Professor at the Faculty of Medicine and head of the Centre for Translational Bone, Joint and Soft Tissue Research (tu-dresden.de/med/tfo) at TU Dresden. His work is focused on biomaterials and scaffold development, tissue engineering and regenerative therapies, mostly for musculoskeletal tissues.

His group is also very active in the field of additive manufacturing of implants and biofabrication technologies, including bioprinting of non-mammalian cells ("green bioprinting"). He is author/co-author of more than 250 journal publications and 25 book chapters with a current h-index of 61 (Google scholar). At present, Michael Gelinsky is President of the German Society for Biomaterials (DGBM), is a member of the Board of Directors of the International Society for Biofabrication (ISBF) and has been appointed as coordinator of a so-called Topical Team on “3D Bioprinting of living tissue for utilisation in space exploration and extraterrestrial human settlements” by the European Space Agency, ESA. In 2020 he was elected as ‘Fellow Biomaterials Science and Engineering’ (FBSE) by the International Union of Societies for Biomaterials Science and Engineering.
