3D Printed Placenta on a Chip Gives Clues to how Conditions Pass from Mother to Child

3D Printed Placenta on a Chip Gives Clues to how Conditions Pass from Mother to Child

One of the least-understood organs in the human body is the placenta. It forms only in the presence of a fetus, and the body expels it after the baby is born, so its formation and function has been very difficult to study. Learning more about it, however, is vital to understanding dangerous conditions that can […]

New Study Discusses Unmet Clinical Needs Being Addressed by 3D Printing

3D printing continues to make a huge impact on the medical field – the evidence more than speaks for itself. But this important work is not done yet. A team of researchers based at the University of Utah recently published a review paper that, as Yong Lin Kong, PhD, an assistant professor in the university’s Department […]

Jennifer Lewis’ Work on 3D Organs-on-Chips Awarded 2017 Lush Prize

Innovators and researchers the world over work to develop products that address human wants and needs. Regulatory bodies the world over also work to ensure that the products that are made available to people don’t do irreparable harm, and many require a large burden of proof that the products under development are safe for humans […]

Researchers Use 3D Printing to Create Organoids for Drug Testing in Monitored Body-On-A-Chip System

Researchers Use 3D Printing to Create Organoids for Drug Testing in Monitored Body-On-A-Chip System

An organ-on-a-chip is a micro physiological system – a small cell culture chip that can mimic the structure and function of living human tissue. Organs-on-chips are helpful in terms of drug testing, and may one day even render animal testing non-essential, which would be great news. However, these small systems are not foolproof, and it’s just as […]

Harvard Researchers Create 3D Printed Heart-on-a-Chip, Potentially Eliminating Need for Animal Testing in the Future

Harvard Researchers Create 3D Printed Heart-on-a-Chip, Potentially Eliminating Need for Animal Testing in the Future

I’ve always hated the idea of animal testing. I try to buy products that don’t test on animals, though sometimes it’s hard to find reliable information. When it comes to animal testing for medical purposes, however, I understand that it’s necessary for the development of drugs and technologies that may eventually save the lives of […]
