3D printed bone model for cancer research

Written by Alexandra Thompson

Researchers from the Department of Veterans Affairs and Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN, USA) have 3D printed replica bone tissue for bone cancer disease microenvironment and therapy research, and find potential new approaches for treatment. A collaborative effort between researchers from the Department of Veterans Affairs and Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN, USA) has 3D printed life-like replicas of human bone tissue from 3D tissue engineered constructs (TECs) in order to model tumor-induced bone disease, for a greater understanding of the tumor–bone interactions and potential to identify new treatments for bone cancer. Dr Julie Sterling of the Department of Veterans Affairs and...
