News & views
Find out what’s happening within 3D printing in medicine, with the latest news from around the world. This channel also highlights interviews, editorials and reviews, where topics such as 4D printing are discussed.
Will we be able to 3D print whole organs? How can we print living tissue for drug testing or therapeutic transplantation? What biomaterials, bioinks or biofabrication techniques are most suitable for different applications? This channel presents research, news and insights on the role of 3D bioprinting tissues and organs for tissue engineering or regenerative medicine; cell-based models, tissues and organs for pharmaceutical and environmental toxicity screening and drug discovery; and in vitro models of organism development and disease, including tissue and tumor phenomics/phenotypic modeling and liquid biopsy analysis.
Medical devices & implements
To date, prosthetics, bone implants, custom 3D printed mini drug dispensaries/pill boxes, plaster cast alternatives, a handheld device for bioprinting cells, wheelchairs and hearing aids have already been printing through additive manufacturing – these products have the potential to be manufactured faster and more cheaply than traditional methods, as well as personalized to individual users' needs. This channel therefore focuses on the development and customization of medical devices, device components, implants, prosthetics and medical tools through medical 3D printing.
