Emerging Manufacturing Processes for Materials, Tissues, and Devices

Tissue research explores novel 3D bioprinting processes the role of bioprinting process parameters on the fabrication and maturation of tissue substitutes recapitulating the physiology, anatomy, and function of native counterparts. Studies over the past ten years have focused on bioprinting of more than ten different tissue types including but not limited to bone, cartilage, blood vessels, and pancreas.
