3D printing of scaffolds and biomolecules for enhanced tissue repair

Tissue engineering typically uses a combination of biomaterial scaffolds, cells and signaling mechanisms (such as growth factors or mechanical stimuli) to restore the function of damaged or degenerated tissues. The research carried out in our laboratory investigates each of these three areas with target applications in tissues including bone, cartilage, skin, cardiovascular, respiratory, and neural tissues. 3D printing has allowed us to tune the mechanical properties of our scaffolds and to develop bioinks with enhanced regenerative potential.
