We have developed anin situbioprinting method that allows the printing of cells under true physiological conditions by applying self-assembling ultrashort peptides as bioinks. This method avoids cell stressing methods, such as UV-treatment, chemical crosslinking and viscous bioink printing methods. We further demonstrate that different nanomaterials can easily be synthesized or incorporated in the 3D bioprinted peptide scaffolds which opens up the possibility of functionalized 3D scaffolds.
