To some extent, bioprinting has what they call in Texas an “all hat, no cattle” problem. The process and its products both tend to grab the eye, but the practical applications have so far been limited. A couple of recent milestones, though, are helping change that. The twin achievements — a new bioprinting process that clears a longstanding structural hurdle, and the creation of a “mini-heart” — represent noteworthy steps toward the ultimate goal of 3D-printing organs for humans.
