A Swifter Way Towards 3D-printed Organs

Video   Sep 25, 2019 | Taken from the Wyss Institute

 

20 people die waiting for an organ transplant every day in the US, but lab-grown organs so far lack the cellular density and functions required to make them viable replacements. The new SWIFT method from the Wyss Institute and Harvard SEAS solves those problems by 3D printing vascular channel networks directly into living tissue constructs, enabling the creation of larger tissues approximating the size and function of organs.

Teach Me in 10 – Engineering a Decoy Receptor for SARS-CoV-2 With Dr Erik Procko, Part II

Video

Dr Erik Procko has been working on engineering a "decoy" receptor for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that has caused the COVID-19 global pandemic. In the second video of this two-part installment, Dr Procko discusses his research in exploring the mutational landscape of ACE2 to further understand the interaction between the receptor and the S protein of SARS-CoV-2.
