Wake Forest’s 3D bioprinted ‘body on a chip’ shows how breakthrough cancer drugs affect our organs

3ders - Oct 10, 2017

Scientists at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) in North Carolina have used 3D printing to develop a “body-on-a-chip” drug testing system. The system consists of micro “organoid” versions of the heart, lung, and liver.   When pharmaceutical companies develop new medications, they face a 90 per cent failure rate. It sounds disheartening, but it’s... Read more »


Imaginarium sees 3D printing facilitate organ transplant and tissue generation in future

PharmaBiz - Oct 9, 2017

Imaginarium believes the field of 3D printing has been growing rapidly. It is an advanced manufacturing technology where physical objects are created from digital data, using specialised machines known as 3D printers. These objects are ‘printed’ by the machines by adding one layer of material over the other, giving the object a three dimensional structure... Read more »

Australian Researchers Use 3D Bioprinting Pen In Orthopaedic Surgery

Snip - Oct 2, 2017

Among the many marvels happening in modern medical research is the addition of additive technologies. Doctors have been particularly keen on developing orthopaedic solutions. Why orthopaedics in particular? Because printing and restoring bones, sinew or bone-like materials is finally possible. While 3D printers have been commonplace in surgical research, 3D pens are a new milestone.   Australia’s... Read more »


3D Bioprinting in Pediatrics

NCBI - Sep 29, 2017

Additive manufacturing, commonly referred to as 3D printing, is a technology that builds three-dimensional structures and components layer by layer. Bioprinting is the use of 3D printing technology to fabricate tissue constructs for regenerative medicine from cell-laden bio-inks. 3D printing and bioprinting have huge potential in revolutionizing the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine....
