3D Bioprinting: Comparing Lattice Scaffolds with Traditional Rectangular Sheets

3D Bioprinting: Comparing Lattice Scaffolds with Traditional Rectangular Sheets

Bioprinting is not a simple endeavor – if it were, we would likely be transplanting 3D printed organs by now. It’s a delicate process that requires a number of factors to be in place, including bioinks that are both printable and biocompatible, and proper scaffolds. In a paper entitled “A Comparative Study of a 3D […]

Exclusive: 3D Printed Cardiac Patch Shows Promise for Healing Damaged Hearts

Exclusive: 3D Printed Cardiac Patch Shows Promise for Healing Damaged Hearts

After a person suffers a heart attack, they lose about half the cells in their heart, greatly weakening the organ and increasing the odds that further attacks will occur. Doctors have begun injecting cells into the heart to grow into muscle and help contractions, but 99% of those cells get washed away. But there are […]

New Study Shows Promise for Repairing Nerve Damage Through 3D Printing

New Study Shows Promise for Repairing Nerve Damage Through 3D Printing

Many injuries to the body can be healed, but nerve damage is something that can be permanent, resulting in the loss of the ability to properly feel, move or utilize the injured body part. There is a treatment for nerve damage that involves grafting healthy nerves onto the damaged parts, but the treatment isn’t perfect, […]

Flubber, 3D Printed Flink and R&D Tax Credits

Unrealistic scientific discoveries from our beloved childhood movies may be coming to life in today’s science community. In the 1960’s Disney movie The Absent-Minded Professor, Professor Brainard creates a substance that gains energy when it hits a hard surface and dubs it “flubber,” a portmanteau for flying rubber. Similar to “flubber,” Swiss scientists have created […]

3D Printed Tumors Made with Cancer Cells May Hold Key to More Effective Treatments

3D printed tumor models can help doctors and surgeons to get a better look at and understanding of the masses that they’re going to be treating or removing from a patient’s body, and they can also help patients to understand their own conditions. But bioprinting actual tumors can tell scientists a lot more about cancer […]

Why Drug Testing May Be the Most Important Application of 3D Bioprinting

3D bioprinting is, needless to say, great cause for excitement. Usually, most people’s minds go immediately to one idea: the idea that in the future, we may be able to 3D print working human organs that can actually be transplanted into patients, saving their lives without requiring a donated organ from another person. It’s understandable […]
