We aim to investigate a Layer-by-Layer LBL bioprinting process using stem cells for retinal tissue regeneration. The LBL nature of the bioprinting process matches nicely with the native, multilaminar anatomy of the retina. This research will bioprint retinal stem cells RSCs and appropriate growth factorsGF encapsulated in a biomaterial e.g. hyaluronic acid, HA. We will investigate the mechanical, chemical and biological properties of the hydrogel materials. We will study the cell viability and analyze the biological functions of the 3D printed retina tissue.
