The Inflection Point: New Focus on Biofabrication Technology

Michael Golway, P.E. in 2010

Dr. Jay Hoying in 2010

In October 2010, Advanced Solutions President and CEO Michael Golway, P.E. was invited to attend a tour at the Cardiovascular Innovation Institute (CII) in Louisville, Kentucky. It was an impactful professional moment for him - on each floor of the facility, he met brilliant scientists finding solutions for cardiovascular disease.

It was on this tour where he met Dr. James (Jay) Hoying, who had recently made a discovery about microvessel networks that would forever change humanity's understanding of angiogenesis. Michael and Jay became fast friends, a common passion in applying technology to solve problems for the advancement of medical science.

Starting immediately, Michael & Jay partnered with their top scientists and engineers to explore ways to advance the field of tissue engineering.

2011

Between 2011 and 2013, the first conceptual designs for an integrated bio assembly platform (what would become the BioAssemblyBot), software (TSIM), and vascularization techniques began to emerge.

An Idea is Born

2012

"YES!"

In 2012, Michael presented Jay, and others at the CII, a robotic platform that today is the BioAssemblyBot. He asked a question, "If Advanced Solutions could build this robot, would it make a profound and positive difference in helping you advance the science of tissue engineering?"

The response was a resounding "YES!"
