Three-Dimensional Bioprinted Biomimetic Nanocomposite Scaffolds for Osteochondral Regeneration

Authors: N.J. Castro, L.G. Zhang

Affilation: The George Washington University, United States

Pages: 263 - 266

Keywords: 3D Printing, nanosphere, growth factors, nanohydroxyapatite, stem cells

The current work focused on the manufacture of a three-dimensional biphasic nanocomposite scaffold for osteochondral regeneration. Extrusion-based 3D printing in combination with ultraviolet light induced photocrosslinking allowed for good integration of two disparate polymeric materials containing tissue-specific growth factor encapsulated nanospheres.
