3D Bioprinting for Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration


Tissue engineering is an emerging research field with the hope to produce novel therapy options using biomaterials and autologous cells. The joint use of tissue engineering principles with the developments in 3D bioprinting technology possess the potential to produce custom-made tissues and organs in the laboratory. Along with providing perfect anatomical fit, 3D bioprinting holds the promise to produce living and functional human tissues and organs with some pioneering work already translated into the clinic. Our experience with 3D printing biodegradable polymeric scaffolds and consequent in vitro and in vivo studies have shown that scaffold internal architecture as well as functionalization with mesenchymal stem cells and nanoparticulate controlled growth factor delivery system holds great promise in the regeneration of bone tissue. This talk will give brief information about this experience as well as the biomimetic strategies we have developed to engineer functional skeletal muscle constructs.
