Houston Chronicle: 3D bio-printed organs could provide life-saving technology


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.

Biotechnology company BIOLIFE4D (www.biolife4d.com) is focused on leveraging advances in tissue engineering to 3D-print human organs viable for transplant.
