Development of new inks for 3D printers

Professor Murat Guvendiren at the New Jersey Center for Biomaterials leads a team of researchers working on the development of new inks for 3D printers. 3D printing is an increasingly common technique to fabricate scaffolds and devices for tissue engineering applications. But, one of the major bottlenecks that limits the widespread acceptance of 3D printing in biomanufacturing is the lack of diversity in “biomaterial inks”. Prof. Guvendiren’s team is currently submitting a comprehensive review that highlights recent advances in biomaterial ink development and design considerations moving forward. The review will also include a brief overview of 3D printing technologies focusing on ink design parameters.
