How to Create a Cartilage Using 3D Printer & Living ‘Ink’ [VIDEO]

3D printing technique is getting popular in the field of tissue engineering. They are being used to print living tissues/organs with the goal of treating disease and injury with the implantation of these organs.

Here’s a brilliant video by Dr. Lawrence Bonassar, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University, describing a cutting-edge process he has developed in which he uses a 3D Printer and “ink” composed of living cells to create body parts such as ears.

Thanks to Robby Bowles for sharing this news. He completed his Ph.D. under Dr. Bonassar last January.
