Scientists have improved upon the bioprinting technique they developed to engineer skeletal muscle as a potential therapy for replacing diseased or damaged muscle tissue.
With increased medical precision, speed of service and reduced cost, 3D printing presents a unique opportunity to transform traditional healthcare and its delivery. We give key insights on an array of topics that includes 3D printing of implants and prosthetics, anatomical modeling for surgical planning and the advances of bioprinting of tissue, vessels and organs.
For the first time, researchers managed to make intact human organs transparent. Using microscopic imaging they could revealed underlying complex structures of the see-through organs at the cellular level.
Researchers are 3D printing "groovy" tissue-engineering scaffolds with living cells to help heal injuries.
Rutgers University have devised a way to integrate microneedles with backward facing barbs, so that microneedle arrays can stay in place as long as needed.
Researchers revolutionised 4D printing by making a 3D fabricated material change its shape and back again repeatedly without electrical components.
A prototype for the first 3D-printed, sensor-operated prosthetic arm designed for toddlers under two years-old has been developed by UK engineers.
Researchers have found a way to speed up tissue engineering for potential organ regeneration or replacement using a novel bioprinter.
Researchers have developed a novel methodology to provide non-invasive analysis of meniscal implants.
Researchers have developed a way to 3D print custom microswimmers that can transport drugs and nanotherapeutic agents, as well as potentially manipulate tissue directly inside the body.
Scientists have made a decisive contribution to improving complex surgical training by developing a very realistic prostate phantom.
A 3D printing technique allows fabrication of multilayer blood vessels that have the unique biomolecules needed to transform into functional blood vessels when they are implanted.
A new 3D printing platform is able to fabricate multi-component scaffolds that “steal from nature” to engineer tissues organized like native tissues.
