Biofabrication technologies, in particular additive manufacturing or 3D bioprinting emerged over a decade ago with the promise of providing fast, reliable and user centred platforms for the fabrication of implant scaffolds that would give a definitive solution to tissue regeneration. Since then, there has been a boom on the knowledge and strategies generated, coming closer to the development of effective implants. However, these techniques generally lack of control of surface features and spatial composition.

At BioSmarTE we constantly seek to go one step further over the spatial control by increasing the palette of materials useful for biofabrication and by the inclusion of physicochemical strategies.
