The current work focused on the manufacture of a three-dimensional biphasic nanocomposite scaffold for osteochondral regeneration. Extrusion-based 3D printing in combination with ultraviolet light induced photocrosslinking allowed for good integration of two disparate polymeric materials containing tissue-specific growth factor encapsulated nanospheres.
