QMUL Researchers Use Inkjet 3D Printing and Self-Assembly Technologies to Create Constructs Using Cells and Molecules

QMUL Researchers Use Inkjet 3D Printing and Self-Assembly Technologies to Create Constructs Using Cells and Molecules

Typically when we hear about self-assembling technology in the 3D printing world, it’s usually referring to robots or pieces of furniture that can build themselves. But researchers from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) are continuing to research molecular 3D printing, and recently developed a new technique, which uses molecular self-assembly, to create constructs that look like […]

Wyss Institute Researchers Continue to Advance Organ Engineering Through 3D Bioprinting

An organ transplant is a pretty miraculous procedure on its own, and its development and continuing improvement has enormously benefited its recipients. More than 30,000 people receive transplants each year in the United States alone, but unfortunately, according to the National Kidney Foundation, a further 120,000 are in dire straits as they await a life […]

Bioprinting Organs: Researchers Create Less Expensive Bioink Based in 3D Printed Gelatin Hydrogels

Bioprinting Organs: Researchers Create Less Expensive Bioink Based in 3D Printed Gelatin Hydrogels

3D printed hydrogels have had many different applications in the medical field, from delivering precise doses of medicine and making custom meniscus implants to engineering tissue so that in the future, we can create artificial, transplantable organs. Two years ago, a team of researchers with the Queensland University of Technology were working to develop stiffer […]

POSTECH Research Team Publishes Paper on Single-Step Process for 3D Bioprinting Synthetic Skin

I remember teachers asking the question, “What is the largest human organ?” in class many years ago, and most kids shouted out incorrect guesses, like the stomach or the brain. While the largest internal human organ is the liver, by now we should all know that the skin is the actual largest organ. There has […]

University of Wollongong is Offering a Free Online Course in 3D Bioprinting

Of all the things that 3D printing is capable of, bioprinting is possibly the most incredible. It’s one thing to be able to print perfectly accurate replicas of individual organs, but the idea of printing actual, working human organs seems unreal. Medical researchers are getting ever closer to being able to do so, however: a 3D […]

Sounds Good! Researchers Use 3D Printing to Produce Eardrum Scaffold

Sounds Good! Researchers Use 3D Printing to Produce Eardrum Scaffold

One of the more notable factors affecting the field of medical 3D printing is the simple ‘cool’ factor in looking at how far we have come from treatments of times long past. A common ailment, requiring medical attention through the ages, has been a perforated eardrum, which can occur due to trauma, infection, or Q-Tips. […]

Putting Together the Pieces: Tissue Engineering Research & 3D Printing Possibilities

Not to be confused with the types of activities engaged in by scientists working for the Kleenex® company, people who are tissue engineers closely study the cells, scaffolding, and processes necessary to grow new connective tissues or organs for human implantation. The field emerged in the mid-1980s and has been advancing by leaps and bounds […]

Modern Meadow Raises $10 Million from Horizons Ventures in Order to 3D Print Meat and Leather

Imagine going to the store, buying a pair or boots, a leather jacket, or a a pair of sneakers, and not having the guilt of knowing where that leather came from. Imagine a time when perfect leather could be obtained without having to kill a single animal, or a time when the steak and fish […]
