A 3D Printed Brain Could Make it Easier to Find Cancer Treatments

A 3D Printed Brain Could Make it Easier to Find Cancer Treatments

Glioblastoma is the deadliest form of brain tumor—less than 10 percent of people who are diagnosed with it will survive more than five years. A group of researchers has devised a new way to study this rapidly spreading cancer, using a three-dimensional structure made of an agglomeration of human brain cells and biomaterials.

3D Printed Soft, Rubbery Brain Implants

3D Printed Soft, Rubbery Brain Implants

Engineers are working on developing soft, flexible neural implants that can gently conform to the brain's contours and monitor activity over longer periods, without aggravating surrounding tissue. Such flexible electronics could be softer alternatives to existing metal-based electrodes designed to monitor brain activity, and may also be useful in brain implants that stimulate neural regions to ease symptoms of epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and severe depression.

Wire and Arc to Reduce the Cost of Additive Manufacturing

Engineers are developing the wire and arc additive manufacturing technology (WAAM). One of the key features of this technology is that the wire is used instead of powder for metal parts for 3D printing. This technology can significantly reduce the cost of additive manufacturing. This technology can also compete with subtractive manufacturing methods such as milling in cost efficiency.
