Researchers have repaired traumatic injuries to the skin and bones in a rat model using bioprinting during surgery.
A bioceramic implant has proved to stimulate regeneration of natural skull bone so that even large cranial defects can be repaired in a way that has not been possible before.
Scientists have improved upon the bioprinting technique they developed to engineer skeletal muscle as a potential therapy for replacing diseased or damaged muscle tissue.
