3D Printing of Living Artificial Tissues | University of Bristol

A team from the University of Bristol’s School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, together with scientists at the University of Oxford, has developed a new method to 3D-print stem cells to form complex living 3D structures.

The approach could revolutionise regenerative medicine, enabling the production of complex tissues and cartilage that would potentially support, repair or augment diseased and damaged areas of the body.

In research published in the journal Scientific Reports, an interdisciplinary team of researchers from the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (Bristol) and the Departments of Chemistry, Physiology and Genetics (Oxford), demonstrated how a range of living mammalian cells can be printed into high-resolution tissue constructs.

Interest in 3D printing for organ transplantation is increasing as research gains pace. However, printing high resolution living tissues is challenging.
