TEHRAN (FNA)- Bioengineers have cleared a major hurdle on the path to 3D printing replacement organs. It’s a breakthrough technique for bioprinting tissues with exquisitely entangled vascular networks that mimic the body’s natural passageways for blood, air, lymph and other vital fluids. Bioengineers have cleared a major hurdle on the path to 3D printing replacement organs with a breakthrough technique for bioprinting tissues. The new innovation allows scientists to create exquisitely entangled vascular networks that mimic the body’s natural passageways for blood, air, lymph and other vital fluids. The research is featured on the cover of this week’s issue of Science. It includes a visually stunning proof-of-principle — a hydrogel model of a lung-mimicking air sac in which airways deliver oxygen to surrounding blood vessels. Also reported are experiments to implant bioprinted constructs containing liver cells into mice. The work was led by bioengineers Jordan Miller of Rice University […]
