Review: Engineering Articular Cartilage Through Bioassembly
Massachusetts General Hospital researchers review methods for generating articular cartilage tissue through bioassembly—using spherical microcartilage building blocks to construct a macrotissue. This "bottom-up" approach allows greater complexity and easier replication than conventional methods, usually at a lower cost.
New 3D Bioprinting Technique Makes Functional Articular Cartilage
Massachusetts General Hospital researchers are using a novel approach—direct-volumetric drop-on-demand (DVDOD) technology—to three-dimensional (3D) bioprint healthy articular cartilage.
