Bioprinted 3D cardiac patches could reverse scar formation and promote myocardial regeneration after heart attacks.
Bioprinting is an engineering method where living cells with or without biomaterials are printed layer-by-layer in order to create three-dimensional living structures. We report latest advances of bioprinting of tissue, vessels, bones and even organs.
The Scar Free Foundation has launched a research programme that aims to revolutionise surgeons’ ability to reconstruct nose and ear cartilage in patients affected by facial difference.
Researchers have used 3D bioprinting technology to create custom-shaped cartilage. They aim to make it easier for surgeons to safely restore the features of skin cancer patients living with nasal cartilage defects after surgery.
Researchers have repaired traumatic injuries to the skin and bones in a rat model using bioprinting during surgery.
EPFL spin-off Readily3D has developed a novel system that can print biological tissue in just 30 seconds.
The combination of a 2Photon 3D-printer with an innovative hydrogel-based bioink allows the direct printing of 3D structures containing living cells at both the meso- and microscale.
Researchers have designed a new bioink which allows small human-sized airways to be 3D bioprinted with the help of patient cells for the first time.
Researchers have developed a 3D printing technique that creates cellular metallic materials by smashing together powder particles at supersonic speed.
In a research-first, scientists from Empa were able to 3D print stable well-shaped microstructures made from silica aerogels for use in biotechnology and precision engineering.
Researchers mechanically reprocess silk into a biologically compatible component of bioinks that improves the structural fidelity of 3D-printed hydrogels containing cells for use in drug development and regrowing lost or damaged body
Radiator-like fluid systems adjust the genetic wiring inside human liver cells in preliminary work toward artificial organ-tissue engineering.
