3D Bioprinting Organ Shortage: Putting Bio back into Bioprinting

Even with resolution and speed limitations, human tissue engineering and 3D bioprinting have produced fantastic biological replacements for cartilage and bone, demonstrating that 3D bioprinting for non-metabolically active tissues works well for human transplantation. The technology can yield real medical solutions. Patients have had 3D printed tissue successfully transplanted: their bodies have adopted and incorporated the engineered tissue as their own and even developed vasculature post-transplantation. The engineered tissue has become a living tissue.
