Shape-changing 4D materials hold promise for bioengineering

New hydrogel-based materials that can change shape in response to psychological stimuli, such as water, could be the next generation of materials used to bioengineer tissues and organs.

A 'FRESH' way to bioprint tissues and organs

A 'FRESH' way to bioprint tissues and organs

A bioprinting method enables advanced tissue fabrication by using a yield-stress support bath that holds bioinks in place until they are cured and works with a wide array of bioinks.
