3D printed eel organs could make rechargeable batteries inside the body

Health monitors, pacemakers, mechanical prosthesis and internal drug dispensers all depend on power. The challenge is either making self-activating devices independent of electricity, or finding a way to implant a battery inside the body. In a project supported by the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research and National Institutes of Health, electric eels have […]

Michigan vapor jet 3D printed medicines treat cancer as well as other drugs

A new method of 3D printing custom medication has been developed at the University of Michigan. The method uses an electronics manufacturing technique called Organic Vapor Jet Printing (OVJP), the technique is capable of layering multiple drugs on a single surface by spraying them as a fine gas. In an earlier study OVJP is described […]
