Penn State Uses 3D Near-Field Electrospinning Method to Create Scaffolds for Living Tissue

Penn State Uses 3D Near-Field Electrospinning Method to Create Scaffolds for Living Tissue

As of right now, almost every complex transplant tissue, whether it’s a tendon or a kidney or a heart, comes from donors who are living or dead. A research team of engineers from Penn State University are working to develop a reliable, inexpensive method for growing replacement tissues, and they think they’ve found a way […]

4D Printing Technique Could Be Used to Develop 3D Printed Human Organs for Transplant Patients

4D Printing Technique Could Be Used to Develop 3D Printed Human Organs for Transplant Patients

Often, when someone receives a life-saving organ transplant, this unfortunately means that another person recently lost their own life to provide it. But there are many researchers currently working to develop fully functioning human organs that can be 3D printed, which will save the lives of people who need transplants without having to wait for years […]

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 […]

Skin Inspires Creation of 3D Printable, Conductive Self-Healing Hydrogel

Skin Inspires Creation of 3D Printable, Conductive Self-Healing Hydrogel

The ability to heal was once thought to be relegated to living things only, but that’s not the case anymore, thanks to technology. A great deal of work has been done in the development of self-healing materials, with the goal of applying them to everything from electronics to medical devices to even construction. Despite the […]

Duke University Researchers Develop 3D Printable Hydrogel Material for Custom Menisci Implants

Except when they made me in gym class, I didn’t play sports in high school or college (does badminton class count?). But I had friends who were far more athletically inclined, and every once in a while, someone would have to take time off from school due to that dreaded sports injury: the torn ACL, […]

3D Printed Knee Cartilage: Improvement on Meniscectomy Surgeries to be Offered Soon

A technology that was once not accessible to the public, 3D printing is now highly visible. You’ll see plug-and-play 3D printers available at great prices in the most common of physical and online stores today, at your local libraries with patrons literally going to town making 3D models, and in a multitude of schools–even in quite rural […]

A 4D Printed Valve That Actuates According to Water Temperature

It may seem a touch misleading in name, but scientists at the University of Wollongong say they’re creating what they call 4D printing. The fourth dimension they refer to is time and shape shifting as the researchers have begun to develop 3D printed materials capable of morphing into new structures – post production – as […]
