With the rise of culinary 3D printers, most of our favorite foods are printable. The steaks - or rather, the stakes - are high as the 3D printing industry races to perfect printed meat.
A team of Chinese plastic surgeons and tissue engineers have devised a method to 3D print cells which assemble into a replica of a patient’s ear.
Researchers from the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology are using 3D bioprinting method to control melanin-production in skin cells on a biomimetic tissue substrate, creating human-like skin pigmentation.
Researchers from UCLA have developed a SLA-based bioprinter that is able to create therapeutic biomaterials from multiple materials. This advancement could potentially be used for on-demand printing of complex artificial tissues for use in transplants and other surgeries.
Researchers from the University of Michigan have developed a new 3D jet writer that allows them to print high-resolution polymer as microtissues. These tiny tissue structures are able to facilitate cancer cell growth, allowing for improved drug development and testing.
Researchers from Queen Mary University of London have developed a 3D bioprinting method that enables the creation of biological structures from cells and molecules that are commonly found in natural tissues.
