3D bioprinting of human organs, what’s next?Under - Industrial Design, Inspiration, Media, Technology
Anthony Atala, director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, focuses on growing and regenerating human tissues and organs. His team engineered the first lab-grown organ to be implanted into a human, a bladder, and is developing experimental fabrication technology that can “print” human tissue on demand with the help of 3D printing.
Surgeon Anthony Atala demonstrates an early-stage experiment that could someday solve the organ-donor problem: a 3D printer that uses living cells to output a transplantable kidney. Using similar technology, Dr. Atala’s young patient Luke Massella received an engineered bladder 10 years ago; we meet him onstage.
