April SDIS NEWS3D Bioprinted Human Tissues
Applications in Regenerative Human Medicine
On April 16, Dr. Jonah Cool, a scientist in the therapeutics group of Organovo Inc., will tell us about biological applications for 3D printing, commonly referred to as bioprinting. He will focus on various methods of in vitro fabrication using human cells to form tissue-like structures that resemble native tissues in form and function. Bioprinting of human tissues presents unique possibilities for improving efforts in drug development, toxicology and regenerative medicine.
