That mechanical properties of the extracellular environment can influence cell behaviour has already been established. Recent studies indicate that human mesenchymal stem cells are affected by the surface curvature of the underlying substrate. However, how meso-scale substrate curvature affects cell behaviour is still not clear. This study...

Biomimicking biological niches of healthy tissues or tumors can be achieved by means of artificial microenvironments, where structural and mechanical properties are crucial parameters to promote tissue formation and recreate natural conditions. In this work, three-dimensional (3D) scaffolds based on woodpile structures were fabricated by two...

To this day, liver transplantation is the only effective treatment for end-stage liver failure. Unfortunately, the scarcity of liver donors leads to waitlist mortality, pushing the need for alternative treatment options. In vitro models are essential tools in research on alternatives for transplantation. One of the promising models is the...

Background: Despite the considerable development of the field of orthopedic implants in the past century, complications including poor bone ingrowth and implant associated infection (IAI) persist to this day, causing a huge burden to millions of patients and the healthcare systems worldwide. Additive manufacturing (AM) and the subsequent surface...

Three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting studies the initial condition of printed constructs, which makes construct static, and neglects the dynamic changes in natural tissue conformation during tissue repair, disease progression and regeneration processes. Therefore, the concept of four-dimensional (4D) bioprinting has been introduced that allows for...

A major challenge facing the study of bone regeneration today is the inability to mimic the tissue microenvironment and the factors comprising it. Organ-on-chip based microfluidic systems today aim at doing so by dynamically culturing living cells in them. These are preferred owing to their small feature sizes, laminar flows, high throughput,...

In the current day and age, osteogenic bone implants are important to reduce healing time and infections after bone implantation. To help induce bone formation, the implant surface can be biofunctionalized with different agents. A promising surface modification technique used to treat titanium implants is Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO). In...
