Interfacial crosslinking density gradients represent a simple strategy to overcome the challenge of the limited penetration of cells seeded on the surface of hydrogels. The strategy here-presented can be used both when cells need to be seeded after hydrogel processing and to enable cell migration through hydrogel elements additively manufactured.
