Technion Inaugurates 3D Printing Center For Living Cells

Researchers at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology open a center for the printing of living cells, which will be open to all Technion scientists and researchers reports NoCamels.

Levenberg [faculty dean and head of the center] believes that the opening of the 3D bioprinting center will take the research to a new level. “I think it’s a very important step especially in the tissue engineering and biomaterial field because people now realize that the printers are important for engineering tissue for transplantation,” she says.

But how close are we to actually being able to print biological organs that can replace human donations? “I would say the first step is to print tissue for implantation in order to replace damaged tissue in the body,” the Technion scientist tells NoCamels, explaining that the creation of functional organs will be a more complex venture. “Let’s say the tissue printing by itself is complicated because you have a mixture of different cell types that have to be organized in the right orientation, differentiation and function.”
