Nose Cartilage Successfully Created Using 3D Bioprinting

A team of researchers has discovered a way to use 3D bioprinting technology to create custom-shaped cartilage for use in surgical procedures. The work aims to make it easier for surgeons to safely restore the features of skin cancer patients living with nasal cartilage defects after surgery.

Engineering Diseased Human Skin in Vitro

Engineering Diseased Human Skin in Vitro

A research team has successfully produced an in vitro diseased skin model that displays the pathophysiological hallmarks of type 2 diabetes based on 3D cell printing system. Despite continuous research to produce artificial skin with 3D cell printing technology, artificial skin displaying the pathological process present in the native skin has not been reported yet.

Skin and Bones Repaired by Bioprinting During Surgery

Skin and Bones Repaired by Bioprinting During Surgery

Fixing traumatic injuries to the skin and bones of the face and skull is difficult because of the many layers of different types of tissues involved, but now, researchers have repaired such defects in a rat model using bioprinting during surgery, and their work may lead to faster and better methods of healing skin and bones.

Artificial Lung Model Uses 3D Printing

Artificial Lung Model Uses 3D Printing

The warmer temperature and blooming flowers signal the arrival of spring. However, worries about respiratory diseases are also on the rise due to fine dust and viruses. The lung, which is vital to breathing, is rather challenging to create artificially for experimental use due to its complex structure and thinness. Recently, a research team has succeeded in producing an artificial lung model using 3D printing.

New Bioink Brings 3D Printing of Human Organs Closer to Reality

New Bioink Brings 3D Printing of Human Organs Closer to Reality

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. The 3D-printed constructs are biocompatible and support new blood vessel growth into the transplanted material. This is an important first step towards 3D-printing organs.

Rapid 3D Printing Method Moves Towards 3D Printed Organs

Rapid 3D Printing Method Moves Towards 3D Printed Organs

It looks like science fiction: A machine dips into a shallow vat of translucent yellow goo and pulls out what becomes a life-sized hand. The hand, which would take six hours to create using conventional 3D printing methods, demonstrates what engineers say is progress toward 3D-printed human tissue and organs — biotechnology that could eventually save countless lives lost due to the shortage of donor organs.
