Breakthrough To Enable People With Paralysis To Walk Again

For the first time in the world, Israeli researchers have engineered 3D human spinal cord tissues and implanted them in lab model with long-term chronic paralysis.  

3D Printing of Body Parts Is Coming Fast

In the last few years, the use of 3D printing has exploded in medicine. Engineers and medical professionals now routinely 3D print prosthetic hands and surgical tools. But 3D printing has only just begun to transform the field.

3D printing the human heart

Researchers have published a new 3D bioprinting method that brings the field of tissue engineering one step closer to being able to 3D print a full-sized, adult human heart.

Scientists print first 3D heart using patient's biological materials

In a major medical breakthrough, Tel Aviv University researchers have "printed" the world's first 3D heart. Engineered heart completely matches the immunological, cellular, biochemical and anatomical properties of the patient.

A significant breakthrough in the field of 3D bio-printing

A team of UK researchers has developed a special fluid gel that can be used as a medium for suspension of biological material. This will solve a problem faced by scientists attempting to replicate soft human tissue.

Chinese scientists used 3D printing to grow new ears for 5 children

Each scaffold was made by 3D printing a replica of each patient’s ear using a Z Corporation Spectrum Z510 3D printer. The scaffolds were then populated with living cells from each patient.
