Current research using three dimensional (3D) bio-printing for tissue engineering has focussed on characterising the shapes and structures of scaffolds that induce cellular growth. However progress in the are is limited due to the lack of printable biomaterials to enhance cellular activity or to induce cellular responses through external signalling such as temperature and electricity. This study addresses the properties and characteristics of functionalised materials that can be utilised in 3D scaffolds for tissue engineering.
