The Challenges and Advances of Imitating Nature

One of the largest hurdles of in vitro cell culture has been to mimic conditions that closely resemble in vivo outcomes, essentially imitating nature. Significant strides have been made to this end in the

Reprogramming the Fate of Cells

Reprogramming the Fate of Cells In the previous post we wrote titled, “What is 3D Bioprinting?”, we discussed biomaterials, cells, and creating representative 3D structures as being the basis of

What is 3D Bioprinting?

3D Bioprinting is a form of additive manufacturing that uses cells and other biocompatible materials as “inks”, also known as bioinks, to print living structures layer-by-layer which mimic the behavior
