Biofabrication for Tissue Engineering – Advanced Healthcare Materials Virtual Issue

Biofabrication for Tissue EngineeringABiofabrication for Tissue Engineering 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.

We hope that you will enjoy this special collection on biofabrication, featuring amongst others publications from the research groups of Pascal Jonkheijm, Aliasger Salem, Catherine Picart, David Kaplan, Dimitrios Zeugolis, and Ali Khademhosseini. All articles are currently freely available for everybody to access, download, and read until the end of 2017.
