Bioprinting is a technology that could revolutionize the biomedical field. It has already been used to engineer constructs that mimic aspects of the anatomical and structural complexity, allowing the production of perfectly functional and “biologically active” patient-specific parts.

One of the most important challenges of bioprinting is the identification of biomaterials that have adequate biocompatibility and biodegradability features to be used in clinical use in humans.

In this session we will describe some applications of 3D Bioprinting of Polycaprolactone in clinical applications and in research contexts.
