Article on bioink in Physicsworld

The work of Aleks Ovsianikov from TU Vienna, member of the Cluster, has recently been featured on the platform Physicsworld in a series reviewing progress on high-impact research in the field of biofabrication.

“For most bioprinting technologies bioink development is long past the point when it was simply about process compatibility and cell survival; novel formulations are expected to also offer an instructive environment for the cells”, Aleks tells us in course of the article. He explains the complex requirements for bioink properties, often opposing each other regarding scaffold manufacturing and subsequent influence on cells, and how computational models can be of help.
