How 3D Printing Could End The Deadly Shortage Of Donor Organs

Three-dimensional printing has been used to make everything from pizza to prostheses, and now researchers are working on using the emerging technology to fabricate hearts, kidneys, and other vital human organs.

That would be very big news, as the number of people who desperately need an organ transplant far outstrips the number of donor organs available. On average, about 21 Americans die every day because a needed organ was unavailable.

Researchers are using these Philly-made „bioprinters“ to make hearts, stomachs

BioBots makes a device that 3D-prints living cells instead of plastic. The company, founded by Penn grads, is headed to the SXSW Accelerator in Austin next month.

Danny Cabrera was a senior at Penn when opportunity knocked.

It came in the form of Ricardo Solorzano, a recent Penn bioengineering grad who had done his first two years at Miami Dade College, the same state school that Cabrera had transferred from. They never ran into each other in Florida and first met at Penn a few years later. Solorzano had a prototype for a desktop bioprinter, a 3D printer that uses cells to build living tissue. Did Cabrera want to see it?

And lo, BioBots was born.

Filipino students develop 3D printed trachea using stem cells from patients

While studies on 3D bio-printing are usually done in multimillion dollar laboratories by award-winning professors, students from the Philippines show that it doesn’t have to be that way. For a team of students from the Technological Institute of the Philippines have successfully constructed a ‘bioreactor’ capable of 3D printing an artificial trachea (or windpipe).

Synthetisches DNA-Gel für den Druck künstlicher Organe entwickelt

Ein zweiteiliges wasserbasiertes Gel aus synthetischer DNA und Polypeptiden bringt den 3D-Biodrucker weiter in Richtung Druck von Organen für die Transplantation oder als Tiermodell. Dongsheng Liu (Tsinghua-Universität Peking) und Will Shu (Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh) und ihre Arbeitsgruppen sahen sich mit den Hauptschwierigkeiten konfrontiert, zum einen eine geeignete Matrix oder ein Gerüst zu finden, das die lebenden Zellen dreidimensional unterstützt, zum anderen, ein konsistentes Produkt herzustellen, das der Empfänger des Spenderorgans nicht wieder abstößt.

Can 3-D Printing of Living Tissue Speed Up Drug Development?

Small firm believes bioprinting of human tissue can lower the cost of testing new drugs

Every year, the pharmaceutical industry spends more than $50 billion on research and development. But the path to drug approval by the Food and Drug Administration is laden with abrupt failures in late-phase testing. Only one in 5,000 drugs will make it to market, according to one estimate.

One small biology company believes it has a solution to the pipeline problem: 3-D printing.

Will 3D printers, bioprinters change the future of surgery?

Bioprinted organs would not look like those studied in anatomy books

When an MRI revealed a golf ball-sized tumour growing in Pamela Shavaun Scott’s skull, the California psychotherapist turned to a 3D printer to help find the least invasive and risky way for doctors to extract it.

Her husband, Michael Balzer, the founder of a 3D printing service company, used her medical records to create a three-dimensional image of her brain on his computer and print a 3D model of it.
