Biofabrication is an interdisciplinary field that has seen rapid technological advances that are important in the fabrication of engineered tissues, particularly with the incorporation of defined structures that drive tissue function. Our group is particularly interested in designing new materials and technologies to advance this field. For example, one approach is the printing of cells and materials into hydrogel suspension baths, which are shear-yielding materials that deform to receive printed structures anywhere in 3D space. Due to the complexity of this process, we are developing computational models that combine with new experimental tools to better describe and optimize this process across a range of inks and suspension baths. We are implementing suspension baths in the engineering of anisotropic tissues (e.g., meniscus), where inks are printed that contain short fibers that align due to shear forces during printing. When cells are incorporated (e.g., meniscal fibrochondrocytes), the aligned fibers guide cell and matrix with culture, resulting in the formation of anisotropic tissue constructs. Towards a disease model of myocardial infarction (MI), we transfer cellular spheroids into hydrogel suspension baths at high resolution, enabling their patterning and fusion into high-cell density microtissues. We bioprint iPSC-derived cardiac microtissue models with spatially controlled cardiomyocyte and fibroblast cell ratios to replicate the structural and functional features of scarred cardiac tissue (e.g., reduced contractility, irregular electrical activity) and use them to screen microRNA therapeutics. Such technologies are likely to make a major impact across wide biomedical fields.
