Rutgers Researchers Develop Tunable Bioink for Supporting Tissue Growth

Biomedical engineers from Rutgers University in New Jersey have developed a bio-ink for 3D printing that enables the construction of scaffolds to support growing human tissues. Significantly, the stiffness of the scaffolds can be controlled depending on the mixture of ink used, enabling applications for different types of tissues for repair or replacement.

Published in the journal Biointerphases, the researchers detail the use of modified versions of hyaluronic acid and polyethylene glycol to form a strong gel suitable for use as a scaffold.
