In this study, an advanced hybrid ink was developed, based on a thermogelling block copolymer, alginate and clay. The reversible thermogelling and shear thinning properties polymer acts at the same time as a fugitive material on the macromolecular level and facilitates the cell-laden extrusion based bioprinting.
