Today: Friday, March 20, 2015 – This week’s podcast covers an event at iMakr in NYC that provides tutorials on 3D printing to the public — expanding the technical knowledge for more people to understand and partake in the groundbreaking technology.
Today we look at the revolutionizing technology of Bioprinting. David Kolesky, along with Jennifer Lewis at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Science, having been developing a 3D printing method for the construction of tissue, equipped with vasculature, multiple types of cells and extracellular matrix. These structures are created by co-printing multiple materials known as bioinks in three dimensions. These 3D micro-engineered tissue constructs are opening new avenues for pharmaceutical drug screening and research into wound healing and stem-cells.
