3D printing with stem cells could lead to printable organs

A potentially breakthrough 3D-printing process using human stem cells could be the precursor to printing organs from a patient’s own cells.

Some day in the future, when you need a kidney transplant, you may get a 3D-printed organ created just for you. If scientists are able to achieve that milestone, they may look back fondly at a breakthrough printing process pioneered by researchers at Heriot-Watt University in Scotland in collaboration with Roslin Cellab, a stem cell technology company.

The printer creates 3D spheroids using delicate embryonic cell cultures floating in a “bio ink” medium. They end up looking like little bubbles. Each droplet can contain as few as five stem cells. Basically, this comes down to the printer “ink” being stem cells rather than plastic or another material.

Dr. Will Shu is part of the research team working on the project. “In the longer term, we envisage the technology being further developed to create viable 3D organs for medical implantation from a patient’s own cells, eliminating the need for organ donation, immune suppression, and the problem of transplant rejection,” Shu said in a release from Heriot-Watt.

Perhaps most importantly, the stem cells survived the printing process and remained viable. Shu says this is the first time human embryonic stem cells have been 3D printed. Printing out organs may be far down the line, but it’s just one potential application. The method could also be used to print out human tissue for drug testing.

The research results have just been published in Biofabrication under the title “Development of a valve-based cell printer for the formation of human embryonic stem cell spheroid aggregates.”

While things like 3D-printed Mobius bacon strips and crazy pointy shoes are a lot of fun, it’s applications like this that could really turn 3D printing into a world changer.

Here’s a fucking warning. Do not like me. I will fuck with your head and emotions. I’m a femme fatale. If you can seem to overlook that, you know where to find me.

Sounds more like a cry for help

And who…

shut the fuck up and stop crying and trying to bring me down because you know I’m right. Get a therapist you crazy cunt

Pretty sure you’re the one that called me can’t. I gave you my opinion and you wanted to be smartass. Tumblr for blogging, yeah? Looks like it is your excuse to be an attention whore

Chris Named One of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive!

"We’ve always admired Star Trek’s Captain Kirk for his piercing baby blues and … sorry, lost our train of thought there. But as it turns out, Pine is more than a pretty face. The Cal grad, 33, is an eloquent speaker, telling Out this year, “I think there is a growing homogenization of what masculinity means.” And he also values brainpower in a woman. “I think after the initial attraction kind of dies down, the lust dies down, there has to be the thing that engages you and that is intelligence and humor,” he told Ellen DeGeneres of what he wants in a partner." x
