3D Bioprinted Thyroid Gland by 2015, Kidney by 2018, Says Russian Scientists

Predictions as to when the first living, transplantable organs will be available has been the subject of much debate. However, according to a group of Russian scientists, the release of the first organs will be in 2015. The group has taken a little bit of a different approach since they will be starting with transplant-ready […]

Surgeons Begin Using 3D Printing to Help Explain Patients’ Conditions to Them

Bioprinting continues to make significant strides towards a process that will involve dispensing cells onto biocompatible scaffolding using successive layers to generate tissue-like 3D structures and organs. Along the way, however, there will be a number of interim steps that can also benefit the healthcare community. An excellent example of this is highlighted in a […]
