First ever opposite lung, living donor lung transplant takes place thanks to 3D printing

We all are aware that 3D printing has been helping advance several different types of surgeries. It’s doing this in two ways; first by giving surgeons the option of a variety of new types of 3D printed implants, and second lung-2by allowing surgeons to print replica organs for a better understanding of the procedures that they are about to initiate. Continue reading “First ever opposite lung, living donor lung transplant takes place thanks to 3D printing”

New 3D Bioprinter for Tissue Engineering and Organ Regeneration

With the new 3D Bioprinter, the research group of Professor Paul Gatenholm at the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering exploits new possibilities of tissue engineering and organ regeneration. ​Professor Paul Gatenholm’s research has gained a lot of attention lately, both in newspapers and on television. A quick interview.. Continue reading “New 3D Bioprinter for Tissue Engineering and Organ Regeneration”

Engineering Ourselves – The Future Potential Power of 3D-Bioprinting?

Researchers at Swansea University are exploring the use of a novel 3D-bioprinting technology to make living tissue structures. This research is being focused not towards fuelling the excitement of organogenesis, but instead towards producing heterogeneous biological support tissues for use in reconstructive surgery.  Continue reading “Engineering Ourselves – The Future Potential Power of 3D-Bioprinting?”
