NTU Singapore researchers use pollen for 3D bioprinting

August 30, 2021

Sunflower pollen may allow the development of stronger 3D printing ink material used for tissue engineering, according to researchers from at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The pollen-derived “bio-ink” is a viable alternative to current inks used for 3D printing in the biomedical field (bioprinting) as it can retain its shape when deposited on a […]

3D-printed eardrum patch to repair damage and aid regeneration

August 24, 2021

A multidisciplinary research team at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering have fashioned a novel 3D-printed, biocompatible graft that could be used to repair a damaged eardrum. The Phonograft device, as it is called, is also intended to mitigate the pain, drainage, and hearing loss associated with a damaged eardrum. The eardrum – or […]

Lab-grown cancer cells have less parity with their human source

June 18, 2021

A new computer-based technique developed by scientists at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine has revealed that human cancer cells grown in culture dishes are the least genetically similar to their human sources. The new technique – a tool called CancerCellNet – uses computer models to compare the RNA sequences of a research model with […]
