Rice students target rate of cervical cancer with 3D printed training devices

The Gyno-mite team of Rice University’s Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen (OEDK) are working on a project that could transform the lives of many women, and the people who depend on them, in low-income countries around the world. Using 3D printing, the team has developed a realistic kit to help train doctors to conduct cervical examinations. […]

Cancer gets kicked by 3D printed radiotherapy models

3D printing is helping researchers in the fight against cancer. Around the world, experiments are applying the technology to help plan fail-safe tumor removal, and even to investigate new modes of treatment, such as targeted drug delivery. At the Tomsk Cancer Research Institute of Tomsk Polytechnic University, Russia, a team has developed a new, 3D printable material, that helps to asses […]

CELLINK partners with CTI BIOTECH for 3D bioprinted cancer research

Swedish 3D bioprinter provider CELLINK has released details of a partnership with French regenerative medicine research and development company CTI BIOTECH. A fully licensed human tissue biobank, CTI BIOTECH is using CELLINK 3D bioprinters to create tumorous tissue models in-lab, and investigate new therapies for patients with cancer. Professor Colin McGuckin, Founder of CTI BIOTECH, said, […]

SLA 3D printer materials degrade on demand in Brown University study

A study from the Wong lab at Brown University has given researchers more control over 3D printed polymers. Supporting a direct-write stereolithography (SLA) approach, specially developed materials allow scientists to reverse the 3D printing process, returning a semi-solid structure to a pre-printed liquid state. Reversible 3D printing  The liquid-to-solid reaction inside SLA 3D printers is […]

3D printing re-engineers sperm to fight gynecological cancer

Researchers at IFW Dresden and Chemnitz University of Technology have 3D printed a microtube that can be used for guiding sperm to treat cancer.
