Biophysics of Biofabrication
Biofabrication is revolutionising the way automated fabrication of complex living tissues and hierarchical scaffolds are additively manufactured and offers the potential to synergistically enhance broad healthcare and biotechnology challenges. Rapid technological evolution in the field of biofabrication has seen development of new bioprinting and bioassembly techniques convergent with additive manufacturing technologies to generate a large library of potential hybrid approaches. Very rarely are the biophysics of biofabrication investigated or incorporated into technological development of biofabrication lines. This Special Topic addresses this issue showcasing the latest developments as well as challenges and opportunities from multidisciplinary contributors in the field.
