Researchers Develop 3D Bioprinting Method that Produces Uniform Blocks of Embryonic Stem Cells

When it comes to 3D bioprinting with stem cells the obvious endgame is the ability to produce complex living tissue, such as replacement organs or biological matter. The potential future applications would completely change the world in numerous ways that are difficult to even predict. Transplant organs grown from a patient’s own DNA would be only one of the many uses of complex 3D bioprinted tissue; animal testing could be rendered completely unnecessary, as would the slaughter of animals as a food source. And while we are probably decades away from being able to produce even the simplest of living tissues, researchers and scientists are inching ever closer.
