Functional 3D bioprinted proximal tubule: toward drug testing and transplantation
Scientists from the Wyss Institute at Harvard University (Boston, MA, USA) along with Roche scientist Annie Moisan (Switzerland) have 3D bioprinted a tubular renal structure that recapitulates functions of the kidney, in the hopes of supporting improved drug and toxicology testing without the need for animal testing, and ultimately supporting engineering kidney tissue for transplantation.
