Bioprinting living structures

Mironov V, Prestwich G and Forgacs G
Journal of Materials Chemistry. 17:2054-2060 | doi: 10.1039/B617903G


Publication Summary:

Present efforts in tissue engineering are aimed at building living structures by employing the self-organizing properties of cells and tissues and automated technologies. One such technology is bioprinting that utilizes three-dimensional delivery devices for the rapid and accurate placement of biological materials into biocompatible environments, where post-printing self-assembly takes place. This Application article summarizes the scientific basis of this approach and some of the recent developments.
