Barceló X, Scheurer S, Lakshmanan R, Moran CJ, Freeman F & Kelly DJ. 3D bioprinting for meniscus tissue engineering: a review of key components, recent developments and future opportunities. Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine, 5(4) (2021)  Keywords: bioprinting • meniscus • osteoarthritis • regenerative medicine • tissue engineering  3D bioprinting has the potential to transform the field of regenerative medicine as it enables the precise spatial patterning of biomaterials, cells and biomolecules to produce engineered tissues. Although numerous tissue engineering strategies have been developed for meniscal repair, the field has yet to realize an implant capable of completely regenerating the tissue. This...
