Project BioMeld (full name: A Modular Framework for Designing and Producing Biohybrid Machines) is an EU-funded research project that focuses on bio-intelligent design and production of a biohybrid machine (BHM), a drug-delivery catheter, capable of accessing hard-to-reach areas of the human body.
This project is unprecedented, since it proposes a biointelligent manufacturing pipeline of BHMs that would be self-monitoring and self-controlling, which is a radically innovative approach. The breakthrough we propose is the addition of bio-intelligent production aspects via self-adapting communication between manufacturing cells. Feedback exchanged among these cells will ensure continuous optimization of production. Once developed, biointelligent production will accelerate the development of BHMs and speed up their practical application.
