3D Printed Aorta Cells: Steps Forward

As 3D printing becomes mainstream worldwide, it is great to see steps forward in biotechnology as well. Recently, Turkish researchers were able to print out anatomically accurate aorta cells in 3D.

Everyday we are a step closer and a step further away from the 3D bioprinting of a functional organ made from human tissue. At Sabancı University in Turkey, a research team has pushed us further towards that goal by 3D bioprinting anatomically accurate macro-vascular tissue that could, one day, be used to treat heart disease in cardiac patients and provide the basis for the vasculature of 3D printed organs.
