3D bioprinting has the potential to provide a unified framework for the manufacturing of tissue models for biomedical research, including drug discovery, disease modeling, and regenerative medicine. However, it remains challenging to 3D print replicas of human tissues that have accurate cell types, cellular densities, extracellular matrix compositions, and that can be assayed in a minimally invasive manner for chronic studies. Here, we review how recent breakthroughs in stem cell biology, tissue engineering, and materials science have led to novel 3D printing strategies that have the potential to solve these challenges.
