Extrusion-based bioprinting in musculoskeletal tissue engineering

Conference Dates

June 5-9, 2017


3D bioprinting has the potential to fabricate highly customizable and highly organized structures that, in principle, could be used for the assembly of entire engineered human organs. This emerging biofabrication technology relies on the simultaneous deposition of cells and biomaterials in a layer-by-layer fashion, to form 3D well-organized heterogeneous structures that can mirror relevant complex biological architectures both physiologically and morphologically. Thanks to these attractive features, 3D bioprinting is rapidly becoming a first-choice technique for a broad set of tissue engineering (TE) scenarios, including musculoskeletal tissue engineering.
