The future of biomimetic 3D printing

Written by Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine

In this Editorial from the Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine, Jacob Koffler (University of California San Diego; CA, USA) discusses what is required from advanced materials, stem cell science and printing technologies in order to progress the field of bioprinting. Keywords: 3D printed scaffolds – bioinks – bioprinting – neural engineering – spinal cord injury 3D bioprinting holds promise to fabricate custom organs on demand that can match every patient’s needs. 3D printing of organs is challenging as organs have a complex 3D structure and various organs are built differently. Shape, inner architecture, size and mechanical properties are unique to each organ and support its function. These are often...
