How To 3D Print Human Tissue - Taneka Jones

Video   Oct 28, 2019 | Taken from TED-Ed, YouTube

 

Explore the science of bioprinting, a type of 3D printing that uses bioink, a printable material that contains living cells.

There are currently hundreds of thousands of people on transplant lists, waiting for critical organs like kidneys, hearts and livers that could save their lives. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough donor organs available to fill that demand. What if, instead of waiting, we could create new, customized organs from scratch? Taneka Jones explores bioprinting, a new branch of regenerative medicine.

Lesson by Taneka Jones, directed by Hype CG.

Which doesn’t make any sense – the bigger a being, the more cancer it should have. To understand why, we first need to take a look at the nature of cancer itself.
