Written by Vivian Xie

Researchers and scientists from the University of New South Wales (UNSW, Sydney, Australia), Australian Centre for NanoMedicine (Sydney, Australia), Children’s Cancer Institute (Kensington, Australia) and Inventia Life Science (Alexandria, Australia) were awarded prizes at the 2021 Australian Museum Eureka Prizes for their innovative 3D bioprinter.  The 3D bioprinter allows for the rapid production of cell cultures that can aid in building complex in vitro cancer models. Such models can serve as part of personalized cancer treatments by allowing healthcare providers to screen specific tumors against hundreds of therapeutics and identify a course of treatment that is right for the patient.   As a cancer survivor and researcher, Maria Kavallaris, professor at the Children’s...
