3D Printing Heart Tissue

3D printing tissue gel heart arteries in a soft gel substrate using a syringe as an extrusion nozzle shows the possibility to print living tissues in the same manner. Adam Feinberg Demonstrates 3-D Bioprinting Process – [youtube.com] Adam Feinberg, associate professor of biomedical engineering and materials science and engineering, describes and demonstrates his work in […]

Printing Body Tissue

Scaffolds made of biodegradable materials have been used to help regrow body tissues from a few “seed” cells that are placed in the scaffold. As the cells reproduce, the scaffold degrades and eventually the new tissue displaces the scaffold. Now scientists are using rapid prototyping techniques to make more precise scaffolds in three dimensions. There […]
