Hyaluronic acid based next generation bioink for 3D bioprinting of human stem cell derived corneal stromal model with innervation

Biofabrication 2023 Volume 15, Number 1, Article 015020

Corneal transplantation remains gold standard for the treatment of severe cornea diseases, however, scarcity of donor cornea is a serious bottleneck. 3D bioprinting holds tremendous potential for cornea tissue engineering (TE). One of the key technological challenges is to design bioink compositions with ideal printability and cytocompatibility. Photo-crosslinking and ionic crosslinking are often used for the stabilization of 3D bioprinted structures, which can possess limitations on biological functionality of the printed cells. Here, we developed a hyaluronic acid-based dopamine containing bioink using hydrazone crosslinking chemistry for the 3D bioprinting of corneal equivalents. First, the shear thinning property, viscosity, and mechanical…

The 3D bioprinted human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiac model: Toward functional and patient-derived in vitro models for disease modeling and drug screening

Bioprinting 2023 Volume 36, Article e00313

More relevant human tissue models are needed to produce reliable results when studying disease mechanisms of genetic diseases and developing or testing novel drugs in cardiac tissue engineering (TE). Three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting enables physiologically relevant positioning of the cells inside the growth matrix according to the detailed digital design. Here we combined human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC)-derived cardiomyocytes (CMs) with methacrylated gelatin (GelMA) and collagen I-based bioink and 3D extrusion bioprinted a cardiac in vitro model for disease modeling and drug screening. Bioprinted constructs were characterized for their rheological properties, swelling behavior, degradation, as well as shape fidelity. The…
