The progress meeting of the project “biofabrication of vascularized tissue constructs” funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) took place on 4th July 2019 at the Institute of Biomaterials, hosted by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini. The project is led by Dr. Raminder Singh and Prof. Iwona Cicha from the Cardiovascular Nanomedicine Unit, Section of Experimental Oncology and Nanomedicine (SEON)(Head: Prof. C. Alexiou), University Hospital Erlangen, in collaboration with Dr. R. Detsch and Prof. Boccaccini (FAU Institute of Biomaterials), and it is developing novel bioinks and biofabrication approaches to produce vascularized tissue constructs, with focus on alginate/silk fibroin-based hydrogels. Our previous review paper entitled: _Biofabrication of vessel grafts based on natural hydrogels_ (LINK: ) was published in Current Opinion in Biomedical Engineering [1].
