Research into 3D-Bioprinting may soon produce transplantable human tissues

3D-bioprinting is an exciting new technology, which may one day lead to the fabrication of replacement human tissues on-demand for transplantation. A team of scientists at Swansea University in the UK are working on the design and development of a new generation 3D-bioprinting technology, together with the biological methods to make living tissues. With development then there is hope that this process can be used to make living constructs that can be used to replace damaged or diseased tissues. This is being focused towards producing lost tissue of the knee or hip as a result of arthritis and for such applications as abdominal, tracheal and breast reconstruction following cancer. This next step in the development of this process could one day transform the field of reconstructive medicine.
