A team of researchers from Linköping University (Sweden) has developed a bioink for 4D bioprinting tissue-mimicking materials, designing a method to keep cells alive throughout the printing process. A team of researchers from Linköping University (Sweden) has developed a bioink for 4D bioprinting tissue-mimicking materials, designing a method to keep cells alive throughout the printing process. Daniel Aili, Associate Professor in the Division of Biophysics and Bioengineering at Linköping University, explained: “Bioprinting is a new and exciting technology to manufacture three-dimensional tissue-mimicking cell cultures. It has been a major problem to develop the bioink required, i.e. a material that can...
