Translational Challenges in 3D-Bioprinting

By Prasad Shastri, Professor of Biofunctional Macromolecular Chemistry & Bioss Professor of Cell Signalling Environments / Director, Institute for Macromolecular Chemistry at University of Freiburg

3D-Bioprinting holds much promise in advancing medicine as tool to replicate cellular complexity of tissue environment ex vivo for drug screening and as a means of engineering well-defined functional tissue units for transplantation. In regards to the latter, 3D-bioprinting offers a critical link between principles of tissue engineering and patient-specific delivery of healthcare.
