3D-Printed Organs May Be In Our Future

3D printing, transplant, stem cells,

A day may come when people who must have an organ transplant would just get a 3D-printed organ for their need. That is, if this cutting-edge technology currently being developed by scientists from Scotland’s Heriot-Watt University and Roslin Cellab see much success. In the simplest possible explanation, they are attempting to combine 3D printing and stem cell research meaning medical 3D printers in the future may use stem cells to print organs needed by people.
