I discuss the in-situ delivery of biomaterials and cells for skin tissue repair. We developed a handheld skin bioprinter, specifically for intraoperative use. I will discuss unique features of the handheld bioprinter instrument, physical and in vitro characterization of in-situ deposited biomaterials and tissues, as well as in vivo results that were obtained in porcine wound in collaboration with Dr. Marc Jeschke’s team at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in Toronto.
