University Medical Centre Utrecht researchers experiment with 3D bioprinted living tissues to treat arthritis

A team of researchers at the University Medical Centre (UMC) Utrecht in the Netherlands are experimenting with 3D bioprinted tissues that can be implanted into a living joint affected by arthritis. The method is hoped to allow the replacement of damaged cartilage. Arthritis is a common disease affecting approximately 350 million people worldwide. With over 100 […]

Newcastle University creates first 3D printed human corneas

Scientists at Newcastle University (NCL) have successfully 3D printed human corneas for the first time. Gelatinous and multicellular, the artificial corneas are valuable steps towards much needed solutions for the millions of people suffering from eye disease and severe damage around the world. A vivid solution The cornea is a vital part of human vision; […]

Cardiac conduction system visualised using 3D printing

New research is using 3D printing to advance understanding and treatment of abnormal heart rhythms. The heart is the most important organ in the human body. Understanding how the heart behaves is crucial for doctors conducting surgical procedures, but also of vital importance within the field of medical research. Scientists at universities in the UK […]
