This short article describes how Organovo is using a novel technology called bioprinting to produce liver and kidney tissues that could help reshape the way drugs are tested and organs are transplanted in our days. It also discusses the challenges and potential effects on society.
Organovo, kicked off use of 3D printed liver tissue in big pharma research and drug development. Can it catapult the industry to shorten drug development cycle time and print entire liver organs in the next 15 yrs?
3-D printing of cellular structures is changing the way we trial preclinical pharmaceuticals and consider the future of organ transplants.
How close is Organovo to bio-printing implantable human liver tissue? Will it be able to afford the time required to achieve this monumental step in healthcare?
There is a large shortage of organs available for lifesaving transplants. As a result medical researchers are turning to 3D bioprinting to address the growing shortage. Swedish start-up Cellink is revolutionizing the bioprinting industry with its innovative bioink, making bioprinting more widely accessible.
Exploring the Department of Defense's bio-additive manufacturing gambit to address mounting soldier care shortcomings
Envisiontec “Additive Manufacturing”, or in simpler sexier terms, 3D PRINTING has been at the forefront of the technology and innovation discussion. Created for recreational uses, the concept of mechanically building components by adding layer over layer has expanded to construction, […]
Organovo and other biotech companies are changing the shape of medical research and practice by developing and perfecting bioprinting technology. With the ability to print 3D tissues and organs, what are some of the opportunities and challenges presented by this technology?
Fast pace of digitization is having a tremendous impact on the opportunities for the medical industry, specifically, enabling technology to react faster and more efficiently to the current health needs. Bioprinting is one of such digitalization outcomes, shifting the need for physical human organ to the need for fast 3-D printer.
