The talk will discuss our recent efforts on developing a series of bioprinting strategies including sacrificial bioprinting, microfluidic bioprinting, and multi-material bioprinting, along with various cytocompatible bioink formulations, for the fabrication of biomimetic 3D tissue models. These platform technologies, when combined with bioreactors and bioanalysis, will likely provide new opportunities in constructing functional organoids with a potential of achieving precision therapy by overcoming certain limitations associated with conventional models based on planar cell cultures and animals.
