Scientists at Harvard have used a 3D bioprinter to 3D print a tubular renal architecture that mimics human kidney function.

#openbiomedical
Scientists at Harvard have used a 3D bioprinter to 3D print a tubular renal architecture that mimics human kidney function. The research advances the collective goal of 3D printing functional human organs for drug screening, disease modeling, and regenerative medicine. In recent years, a group of Harvard materials scientists has demonstrated its ability to 3D …
