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...

Self Healing with Synthetic Biology

Today, I wanted to provide some context to spark a discussion on using living organisms as supplements in structures to make them self healing. I saw a piece on self-healing concrete that was harnessing calcium carbonate precipitating bacteria. This could have tremendous applications for repairing roadways and buildings, among other...
