There is a growing demand for alternative techniques to develop engineered tissues and organs as conventional approaches are not capable of fabricating constructs with structural and biological complexity. Recently, additive manufacturing, also known as three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting have drawn great attention with the potential to generate highly complex constructs with precise control of structure. To do this, 3D bioprinting process must utilize a “bioink” to fabricate devices and scaffolds in a layer-by-layer manner. In this thematic series in Biomaterials Research, 3D bioprinting methods with particular emphasis on generation and transplantation of different tissues along with bioink requirements will be discussed.
