Bioprinting: Scientists Print Live Ears, Muscles, Jawbones

Bioprinting: Scientists Print Live Ears, Muscles, Jawbones

Scientists at the Wake Forest University have used a revolutionary bioprinting technology to create live body parts like ears, muscles, and jawbones in laboratory. These living body parts functioned normally when implanted into animals. The new technology uses a combination of living cells and a special gel to 3D print live body parts. Findings of the study were published in the journal Nature Biotechnology.

The gel hardens to the consistency of the living tissue

Researchers led by Dr. Anthony Atala of the Wake Forest University Institute for Regenerative Medicine used an integrated tissue-organ printer (ITOP) to fabricate human-scale, stable tissue constructs of any shape. Their bioprinting method involves mixing live cells with a gel that is initially a liquid, but quickly hardens according to the consistency of the living tissue.
