Trends in bioinks innovation
Summary: Bioinks are the interface between a bioprinter and biological cells. The printability, shape fidelity and cell viability form the basic requirements of bioinks development. Adjustment of compositions has also been constantly explored to modulate certain properties of bioinks. However, to further advance beyond these basics, bioinks involving new chemistry or new physics capable of delivering multi-functions for in vivo performance should be designed, synthesized, and tested. Novel derivatives and new material classes would help unveil the mystery of the interface between living and non-living materials. This column aims to collect the on-going research focuses on bioinks innovation and reveal the current thinking of future bioinks.

Advanced bioprinting techniques
Summary: Current bioprinters originate from various standard 3D printers that are designed to print non-living materials. However, bioprinters are meant for printing living tissues and organs. The more they look alike, the harder the printing of living tissues and organs. On the contrary, perhaps the more distinct in capabilities beyond 3D printing the closer to biological pathways to tissues and organs. Therefore, advanced bioprinting techniques should look different from standard 3D printers with novel capabilities to deal with biological challenges. From nozzle design to new principle, from process integration to post-treatment, there are vast possibilities. This column aims to collect the on-going research focuses on bioprinting technique innovation and the current thinking of future bioprinters.

Advances in bioprinted organs and tissue models
Summary: Bioprinted organs and tissue models are two primary applications of bioprinting, but they have long been criticised for immaturity and low clinical relevance despite some commercial successes. The factors causing such general inadequacies are multiple and complex. Even the question of vascularization has not been well answered after nearly three decades. However, the accumulation of stepwise or incremental improvements is essential before a breakthrough falls on mankind. Therefore, this column aims to collect the on-going research focuses on all the approaches that effectively leads to better tissue or organ outcomes than before, as well as the current thinking of clinical translation of bioprinting.

Emerging novel bioprinting applications
Summary: Bioprinting is invented as an automation method in tissue engineering to solve organ shortage. Unexpectedly, some research disciplines have experienced its side effects – fortunately, positive side effects. To these non-tissue engineering fields, bioprinting is seen as either a new technology that offers the advantages of 3D printing and the flexibility of using materials of their interest or a disruptive technology that supplies human tissue products only available in dream before. Some may be revolutionized by bioprinting while others may experience enhanced or accelerated developments. Therefore, this column aims to collect the on-going research focuses on the extended applications of bioprinting and the current thinking of future markets of bioprinting.

Convergence of "X technology" and bioprinting
Summary: While bioprinting brings new possibilities to other research fields, many reciprocally return new opportunities to bioprinting. The term “X technology” refers to any technology of other fields that can be combined with or applied to bioprinting to advance the interdisciplinary science, potentially transforming or revolutionizing bioprinting. Common examples of X technology are nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, microfluidics, 4D printing, etc. The birth of bioprinting is due to the cross of 3D printing and tissue engineering. Another cross or a few more crosses may be necessary to eventually printing human organs. Therefore, this column aims to collect the on-going research focuses on new technologies and the current thinking of future bioprinting.
