A current hot topic in Advanced Healthcare Materials, and in biomaterials research in general, is biofabrication for tissue engineering.
This virtual issue includes review-type articles and some highly cited primary papers, not only on 3D bioprinting of scaffolds and hydrogels, but also on other micro- and nanofabrication techniques for the generation of 3D microtissues and implants, which are finding many applications in regenerative medicine. In addition, several publications cover textile-based approaches, using silk and other fibers for tissue regeneration, even including organ weaving. The articles in this collections currently freely available for everybody to access, download, and read until the end of 2018.
