3D Bioprinting Conference: Will the human body be 3D printed soon?!

Nuenen, June 11 – Which effects does tissue engineering cause? Which markets are influenced by the growing 3D printing technologies? How much will the production of 3D bioprinted tissues and organs cost? And how quickly can those customized products be produced, once the need has been identified? Since 3D Bioprinting is in its first stage of development, many questions arise and are not even answered yet. Continue reading “3D Bioprinting Conference: Will the human body be 3D printed soon?!”
