Bioprinted ovaries on the horizon following porcine protein mapping

Written by Georgi Makin

Scientists from the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago (IL, USA) have reported success in mapping the location of structural proteins in a porcine ovary, in a step towards developing a bioink for 3D printing bioprosthetic, implantable ovaries. Scientists from the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago (IL, USA) have reported success in mapping the location of structural proteins in a porcine ovary. Described in Scientific Reports, the team claims that this is an important step toward the development of a bioink for 3D printing bioprosthetic, implantable ovaries that may allow women to conceive,...
