Life as printed – Bioprinting gives hope

Dear Sir or Madam,

The demand for organs is much higher than the availability of donor organs. Worldwide, tens of thousands of people therefore die every year because they do not receive a transplant in time. It is hoped that bioprinting will provide a solution to the shortage of donor organs. You can read more about this in our Topic of the Month.

Stay healthy!
