5 Ways Bioprinting is Changing the Life Science Industry

Bioprinting is changing how we do biology.

Not much has changed in the way of tissue culture sinceAlexis Carrel pioneered the space over 100 years ago. We continue to use thesame dishes, and run most of our experiments on two dimensional homogenoustissues. Unfortunately, these 2D models of biology are extremely primitive whencompared the...
