Cells only: UIC Sscaffold-free 3D Bioprinting produces intricate Tissues

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) have developed a scaffold-free 3D bioprinting process. Commonly, biodegradable scaffolds are used to maintain the shape of 3D bioprinted tissue used in regenerative medicine research. However, according to the study published in Materials Horizons, degradation byproducts within the scaffolds can be toxic as well as interfere with the development of cell-to-cell connections of functional tissues.
