As a promising technique for bone tissue engineering, bioprinting has seen significant progress in recent years for facilitating the fabrication of bionic tissues with high complexity. However, it remains a challenge to develop cell-laden bioinks in combination with superior physiochemical properties and bio-functionality in favor of bioprinting process and subsequent bone tissue maturation, respectively. In this study, a multi-functional nanocomposite bioink was developed based on amine-functionalized copper-doped mesoporous bioactive glass nanoparticles (ACuMBGNs) and a dynamic hydrogel formulation composed of oxidized alginate and gelatin (ADA-GEL), with favorable rheological properties, improved shape fidelity and structural stability for extrusion-based bioprinting. The reversible dynamic microenvironment in combination with the impact of more cell-adhesive ligands introduced by aminated particles, enables the rapid spreading (within 3 days) and high survival (>90%) of embedded human osteosarcoma cells and bone marrow-derived stroma cells of relevance for bone tissue engineering. Potential osteogenesis and angiogenesis are confirmed in the composite bioprinted constructs likely due to the ion stimulation from the incorporated nanoparticles and cell mechanosensing in the dynamic matrix. In conclusion, we envision that our nanocomposite bioinks could serve as a promising platform for bioprinting complex 3D matrix environments providing superior physiochemical and biological performance for bone tissue engineering.
