This book provides current and emerging developments in bioprinting with respect to bioprinting technologies, bioinks, applications, and regulatory pathways. Topics covered include 3D bioprinting technologies, materials such as bioinks and bioink design, applications of bioprinting complex tissues, tissue and disease models, vasculature, and musculoskeletal tissue. The final chapter is devoted to clinical applications of bioprinting, including the safety, ethical, and regulatory aspects. This book serves as a go-to reference on bioprinting and is ideal for students, researchers and professionals, including those in academia, government, the medical industry, and healthcare.
Dr. Murat Guvendiren is the principal investigator of the Instructive Biomaterials and Additive Manufacturing Laboratory (IBAM-Lab) and an Assistant Professor in the Chemical and Materials Engineering Department at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). He earned his B.S. and M.S.degrees in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from the Middle East Technical University in Ankara,Turkey. He earned his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University. He did a postdoctoral training at the University of Pennsylvania. Before joining to NJIT, he was a Research Assistant Professor at the New Jersey Center for Biomaterials at Rutgers University. His research focuses on the development of novel bioink formulations and bioprinting of in vitro tissue/disease models.
