BIOLIFE4D is very thankful for all the national and international press and publications that have helped tell our fascinating story of revolutionizing cardiac health via 3D bioprinting technology. Over the past year, we have been approached by journalists from around the world interested in BIOLIFE4D’s potential impact on one of the worlds most dangerous health crises, heart disease.
Just a few of these articles include:
The emerging tech company, BIOLIFE4D recently announced it has successfully 3D printed human cardiac tissue. This tissue can be used in people who have acute heart failure to help restore lost heart function. This is a huge step toward 3D printing an actual human heart viable for transplant. Learn more about how 3D printers are making body parts that can take over when yours wear out.
According to U.S. Government Information on Organ Donation and Transplantation, hundreds of thousands of patients across the U.S. are currently on a waiting list for a transplanted organ, and 20 people die each day waiting for a transplant. However, researchers within the Texas Medical Center are currently working on technological advances using 3D bio-printed organs and devices that could eventually help to eliminate the current organ shortage.
“A lot has happened in the last couple of years,” says Steven Morris, chief executive of bioprinting start-up Biolife4d. Mr. Morris is working to bioprint a heart using these pluripotent cells over the next year. This will initially be a smaller version of the organ, he explains, but could eventually help pharmaceutical companies bypass testing trial drugs on animals, he says.
