Regenerative medicine promises to revolutionize medicine through the repair or replacement of dysfunctional tissues and organs with engineered biological or biohybrid systems. Current, 1st generation regenerative and biomedical tissue solutions utilize relatively simple uniform tissue constructs formed with cells cultured in or on biocompatible scaffolds. Future regenerative therapies will require the fabrication of complex three-dimensional constructs containing multiple cell types, extracellular matrices, and other elements via customized strategies. We envision a process by which tissue components are fabricated, including via 3D and 4D bioprinting, and assembled in a manufacturing workflow resulting in a final tissue product. This requires a spectrum of biofabrication capabilities. We’ve developed a technology platform enabling these advanced biomanufacturing processes that is being employed to build tissues for assays, tissue models, and replacement tissues.
