3D bioprinting skin applications including wound healing have been a focus of key biofabrication development. In this issue of “From Academia”, we include three publications studying just that. The first study develops a bioprinted skin patch with antimicrobial and wound healing properties using 3D bioprinting. The second study demonstrated improved physical and biological characteristics of fibrinogen hydrogel supplemented with decellularized human skin-derived extracellular matrix (dsECM). This hybrid hydrogel improves the cell viability and structural strength of bioprinted skin constructs, hence better-wound healing ability. The final study develops 3D-printed biomimetic wound dressings using melt eletronwriting technique and demonstrates a solution that could potentially reduce scar tissue formation while enhancing wound closure.
“From Academia” features recent, relevant, close to commercialization academic publications. Subjects include but not limited to healthcare 3D printing, 3D bioprinting, and related emerging technologies.
