‘Droplet-based 3D printing’ lets Oxford researchers create high-res living tissue structures

Researchers at the University of Oxford have found a new way to 3D print living structures from lab-grown cells. The structures could be used as human tissue models, removing the need for animal testing.

New Zealand researchers bioprinting 3D breast cancer tumours to explore different treatments

New Zealand scientists are using an additive manufacturing system to essentially construct a tumour-like structure made from cancer cells. While the research is still in its early stages, one of the main goals of the project is to enable patient-specific cancer treatments.
