A tiny, thin-film electrode with a 3D-printed housing has been implanted in the peripheral nervous system of songbirds, where it successfully recorded electrical impulses that drive vocalizations.
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.
Scientists have paired 3D-printed, living human brain vasculature with advanced computational flow simulations to better understand tumor cell attachment to blood vessels.
Engineers are developing a 3D printed artificial blood vessel that allows doctors and patients to keep tabs on its health remotely.
New muscle has successfully been created in mice using a minimally invasive technique dubbed ‘intravital 3D bioprinting’.
Nanoengineers plan to develop an immunotherapy for ovarian cancer using 3D-bioprinted plant virus nanoparticles.
Researchers demonstrated a methodology that combines the bioprinting and imaging of glioblastoma cells in a way that more closely models what happens inside the human body.
An international team of scientists have discovered a new material that can be 3D printed to create tissue-like vascular structures. In a new study, researchers have developed a way to 3D print graphene oxide with a protein which can organise into tubular structures that replicate some properties of vascular tissue.
Biomedical engineers developed a handheld 3D bioprinter that could revolutionize the way musculoskeletal surgical procedures are performed.
Scientists have improved upon the bioprinting technique they developed to engineer skeletal muscle as a potential therapy for replacing diseased or damaged muscle tissue.
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.
Researchers have found a way to speed up tissue engineering for potential organ regeneration or replacement using a novel bioprinter.
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.
Scientists have found the perfect geometry: on a newly developed 3D silicone lattice, human stem cells will grow and behave in the same way as they do inside the human body.
Researchers have announced a collaboration to 3D bioprint stem-cell tissue that could one day be used to treat end-stage kidney disease.
