Summary #804

A swifter way towards 3D-printed organs
  • Sacrificial Writing Into Functional Tissue (SWIFT) enables scientists to 3D-print organ-specific tissues viable for transplants.
  • It focuses on printing vessels necessary to support a living tissue construct with large amounts of organ building blocks.
  • This means they could be used to repair and replace organs using lab-grown versions containing the patients’ own cells.
  • Combined with recent advances in stem-cell research, this method is a big step forward for organ engineering.
