Bioprinting of bone and cartilage suffers from low mechanical properties. Here we have developed a unique inkjet bioprinting approach of creating mechanically strong bone and cartilage tissue constructs using poly(ethylene glycol) dimethacrylate, gelatin methacrylate, and human MSCs. The printed hMSCs were evenly distributed in the polymerized PEG-GelMA(More)
Inkjet bioprinting is one of the most promising additive manufacturing approaches for tissue fabrication with the advantages of high speed, high resolution, and low cost. The limitation of this technology is the potential damage to the printed cells and frequent clogging of the printhead. Here we developed acrylated peptides and co-printed with acrylated(More)
A major challenge for clinical use of skin substitutes is insufficient host tissue integration leading to loosening and partial necrosis of the implant. In this present study, a three-dimensional (3D) coculture system constructed using human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (uc-MSCs) and umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) encapsulated in gelatin(More)
Bioprinting as an advanced enabling technology has the capacity to construct tissues with respective anatomical structures. In order to maintain the precise printing resolution for anatomical tissue printing, cell seeding density in bioink is limited. Bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are widely used for cartilage tissue engineering.(More)
Bioprinting based on thermal inkjet printing is one of the most attractive enabling technologies for tissue engineering and regeneration. During the printing process, cells, scaffolds , and growth factors are rapidly deposited to the desired two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) locations. Ideally, the bioprinted tissues are able to mimic the(More)
