Stem cells have demonstrated remarkable potential for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine through their ability for self-renewal and controlled differentiation. However, the development of optimal three dimensional (3D) scaffolds that overcome the limitations of 2D cell culture remains an elusive challenge in stem cell research. Here, we demonstrate the use of direct-write assembly to create tailored hydrogel scaffolds composed of 3D microperiodic architectures for applications with two types of stem cells, human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and mesenchymal stem cells (mSCs). Photo-polymerizable poly(hyaluronic acid) (pHA) is synthesized as an ink for scaffold…
