Researchers uses 3D printing to generate in-vitro 3D tumor models

Using 3D printing, a group of researchers in China and the US have successfully created a 3D model of a cancerous tumour. The model, which consists of a scaffold of fibrous proteins coated in cervical cancer cells, has provided a realistic 3D representation of the environment surrounding a tumour so that different types of drugs can be tested in a realistic way, the researchers said.
