New Bioink for Printing Tissue-Like Structures

Jülich/Würzburg, 19 October 2017 – Scientists from the University of Würzburg have synthesized a new thermogel which is suitable for use as a biological ink for the 3D printing of tissue-like structures for regenerative medicine. Investigations using neutron scattering on one of Forschungszentrum Jülich’s devices suggest that the material – a mixture of a polymer and living cells that is liquid at room temperature – forms an unusual sponge-like network in its gel state.
