Over the last decades, the fabrication of three-dimensional (3D) tissues has become commonplace. However, conventional 3D biofabrication techniques are limited in their capacity to produce complex tissue constructs with the required precision and controllability that are needed to replicate biologically relevant tissues. To this end, 3D bioprinting offers great versatility in the fabrication of biomimetic volumetric tissues that are both structurally and functionally relevant. It enables precise control of the composition, spatial distribution, and architecture of bioprinted constructs facilitating the recapitulation of the delicate shapes and structures of targeted organs and tissues. This talk will discuss our recent efforts in developing a series of advanced 3D bioprinting strategies along with various cytocompatible bioink formulations. These platform technologies are likely to provide new opportunities in constructing functional tissues to facilitate regeneration and microtissue models for promoting personalized medicine.
