Nanomaterials in 3D bioprinting: synthesis, modification, and application

Iman Manavitehrani, Noushin Nasiri, Maryam Parviz

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter aims to focus on state of the art in existing nanostructured bioinks and nanoscale surface interactions. To this end, we first briefly describe the definition and principals of three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting followed by an in-depth explanation of the different bioprinting technologies. Then, we demonstrate the synthesis, surface, and bulk modifications of nanobioinks. The discussion is then followed by the applications of these 3D structures in regenerative medicine focusing on a blood vessel, bone, dental, cartilage, and neural 3D bioprinting. At the end, challenges and future development of nanostructured bioprinting constructs are discussed.
