A new bioprinting process from researchers at Colorado University Boulder paves the way for the fabrication of complex human tissues like blood vessels and organs. Researchers have made a potential breakthrough in 3D-printing complex body tissues like blood vessels, arteries, and even organs by developing a process that allows for localized control of an object’s firmness, researchers said. A team at Colorado University Boulder (CU Boulder) has developed the technique—a layer-by-layer printing method that paves the way for new biomedical applications, researchers said in a CU news release .
