Novel biomaterials for 3D plotting and bioprinting: an interview with Michael Gelinsky

Written by Michael Gelinsky

In this interview, Michael Gelinsky, Head of the Centre for Translational Bone, Joint and Soft Tissue Research at the Dresden University of Technology (Dresden, Germany), discusses the potential for 3D printing to revolutionize the field of tissue engineering. The use of 3D printing for producing medical devices such as implants and prosthetics has grown enormously in recent years, with new success stories now coming to light almost every week. The potential for this technology is vast, and now includes 3D bioprinting to rebuild tissues such as bones and cartilage for reconstruction surgery. However, 3D printing for tissue engineering still has...
