3D bioprinters are steadily becoming a staple in research and health settings around the world—and Russian researchers from the 3D Bioprinting Solutions lab just outside Moscow are proving just how powerful they can be.
Researchers hope tissues could help with drug testing and one day even lead to lab-grown heart replacements
Check out the amazing work that our collaborators, Dr. Kevin Costa and his lab, are doing at Mount Sinai!
3D bioprinting is an intuitive way to approach biology. But not many people realize its versatility. To give an idea of what is possible through 3D bioprinting, we’re starting a little series called “10 Cool Things You Could Print with a 3D Bioprinter.” Hopefully, this will make the idea of bioprinting a little more accessible! So...
Here at BioBots, we aim to create a culture of collaboration around 3D biological printing. We envision a world where researchers, doctors, 3D bioprinter manufacturers, software companies, lab equipment companies, and perhaps most importantly, DIY 3D bioprinting enthusiasts can coexist and cooperate on groundbreaking work in an open...
Mary Shelley published her magnum opus, Frankenstein, in 1818. It was at this point in human history that the burgeoning scientific revolution of the 19th century ushered in one of the most awe-inspiring eras of progress and innovation the world has ever seen, which culminated in the consummate fruition of the industrial revolution.
Mother Nature is a master engineer. Through years of evolution, it has fine-tuned the relationship between structure and function for all organisms. By turning to nature for inspiration, scientists, builders, inventors, and thinkers have improved the lives of individuals every since the dawn of mankind.
