Global Technology – March 2016

Using a sophisticated, custom-designed 3D printer, regenerative medicine scientists at Wake Forest University proved that it is feasible to print living tissue structures to replace injured or diseased tissue in patients.

As reported in Nature Biotechnology, the scientists printed ear, bone and muscle structures. When implanted in animals, the structures matured into functional tissue and developed a system of blood vessels. Most importantly, these early results indicate that the structures have the right size, strength and func.....
