Bioprinting: from skin substitute to the printed human?

Dear Sir or Madam,

Did you know that in the USA, more than 113,000 people are on the waiting list for a donor organ? The hope for those people on the waiting lists is bioprinting. Because with it, it is already possible to print tissue substitutes – but also whole organs? Find out why this is not so easy and what progress research has already made in this area in the current video.

Stay healthy!
