GWU SEAS Research Team Publishes Study on 3D Printing Synthetic Nerve Tissues to Help Patients with Bone and Nerve Damage

3D bioprinting is a pretty large category, and it isn’t just about manufacturing organs. Scientists and researchers all over the world are using 3D printing technology to build tissue lattices, matrices, and scaffolds, for the purpose of regenerating living tissue or engineering it. Recently, a research team from The George Washington University’s School of Engineering & Applied Science (SEAS) […]

Bioprinting & Tissue Regeneration in Focus: Center for Engineering Complex Tissues Opens This Weekend Thanks to NIH Grant

Even the most cutting-edge research needs an economic boost to keep going, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) often provides this boost in the form of grants. The NIH has awarded grants to several research efforts centered around 3D printing technology, including Northeastern University’s work with 3D magnetic printing to make neonatal catheters, the […]

CELLINK Introduces the BIO X, a Flexible, User-Friendly Bioprinter with Everything a Tissue Engineer Could Want

The field of 3D bioprinting is expanding fast, and as more and more companies and institutions emerge in the field, it can be hard to keep track of who is who, and who has created what. It’s hard to forget what CELLINK has done, though. The company was officially launched only a year and a half […]

3D Printed Bio-Tissues: Navigating Patent Protection

3D Printed Bio-Tissues: Navigating Patent Protection

Navigating what is patentable in 3D printed bio-tissues is complicated.  Generally, laws of nature, natural phenomena, and abstract ideas are patent ineligible.  Thus a new mineral discovered in the earth or a new plant found in the wild is not patentable subject matter.  Likewise, Einstein could neither patent his celebrated law E=MC2, nor could Newton […]

American Process Inc. Partners With Swansea University to Develop 3D Printed Tissue Using Nanocellulose

Of all the amazing things that 3D printing has done, facial reconstruction is one of the most incredible. It wasn’t long ago that someone suffering from severe facial damage or deformity had to resign themselves to living with that disfigurement, but advancements in reconstructive surgery have been happening fast, and a lot of that has […]

3D Printed Stent May Soon Give Hope to Esophageal Cancer Patients

3D Printed Stent May Soon Give Hope to Esophageal Cancer Patients

Pretty much everyone I know, myself included, has lost someone to cancer, many of them far too young. Finding a cure for cancer is the lofty, ultimate goal for medical researchers, and people like to fantasize about the day when the headline suddenly appears in the paper: “Cure for Cancer Found!” No more deaths from the disease, […]

Doctors Create A 3D Printed Trachea on a MakerBot

Doctors at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, part of the North Shore-LIJ Health System in New York, say 3D printing can be used to create a biodegradable tracheal segment containing a patient’s own cells to aid them in complex reconstruction surgery. Also known as the “windpipe,” the trachea is the tube that connects the […]
