Researchers have demonstrated a novel bioink formulation – containing a polymer derived from seaweed – which improved the mechanical stability of 3D-printed cell scaffolds, taking a promising step towards the reality of 3D-printed gels for tissue engineering and wound healing. 3D-printed cell scaffolds hold great promise for wound healing as the high spatial precision of the 3D printing process allows fine control over the tissue architecture. However, biocompatibility and structural stability concerns remain an obstacle in translating research into clinical applications. In a study published in Biomaterials Science, researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterial Science at the…
