Recreating the brain’s neural network using 3D nanoprinting technology

Written by 3DMedNet

Aston University (Birmingham, UK) has launched MESO-BRAIN, an initiative to recreate brain structures using 3D nanoprinting technology to improve drug screening and testing, and reduce the need for animal testing. Researchers from Aston University (Birmingham, UK) have recently launched MESO-BRAIN, a 3-year research project that aims to reproduce the neural networks found in the brain using 3D nanoprinting technology. A significant challenge in the tissue engineering field is the ability to produce complex 3D tissues and structures. However, using 3D nanoprinting technology, the researchers believe the MESO-BRAIN project will provide better replication of the brain’s neural networks, creating highly accurate...
