3D Bioprinting: Patient‐Specific Bioinks for 3D Bioprinting of Tissue Engineering Scaffolds
On the Cover: Ali Tamayol and colleagues are developing alginate‐based bioinks that carry platelet-rich plasma as a source of growth factors and are compatible with commercial bioprinters. The use of autologous PRP in the bioinks is an important step towards bioprinting patient-specific tissues and scaffolds.
