Scientists 3D Print World’s First Fully Functional Human Heart | Innovation Discoveries

Bioprinting of human tissue is still a technology that is undergoing development, but it is already paving the way for some really exciting possibilities, including the ability of 3D printing complete human organs.

This particular scientific objective is becoming more and more achievable with each passing day, and a team of researchers at Carnegie Mellon University has reported a breakthrough as well. According to the report, the team was able to 3D print full-scale heart components that were even able to function like the real thing.

The particular cells that are responsible for creating different organs in the human body are held together using extracellular matrix (ECM).

It not just a web of proteins that is keeping everything together but also gives the biochemical signaling that is required for a regular and healthy function of the organ. Collagen is a protein that is pivotal to this structural integrity; however, when it comes to bioprinting; it also offers some really noteworthy challenges…Continue Reading
