Mini factories from the 3D printer

Dear Sir or Madam,

Wound healing from the 3D printer? In the future, it will be possible to create all possible shapes and functionalities with 3D printing. Researchers have now succeeded in printing a material that contains bacteria and thus continuously produces new ones. These "mini-factories" could contribute to the healing of burn injuries or to environmental protection. Read more in our News.

A great week wishes

3D Printing in regenerative medicine: a custom-made treatment?

Generative manufacturing processes such as 3D printing have been inspiring both the technology industry and medical technology for years. 3D printing is particularly interesting for the production of individual patient implants. In this context, the focus is increasingly on more than just massive implants such as endoprostheses or dentures. Research is increasingly looking at printed implants that are absorbed by the body while new tissue is being created in their place. Find out what role 3D printing and bioprinting play in this process in our current Special.

Scientist at Kiel University receive EU funding to develop new implantats

During a heart attack muscle tissue can be damaged or can even die when cells are not provided with enough oxygen. A research team from Kiel University (CAU) has developed a biomaterial to regenerate and restore harmed tissue and lead to faster treatment. The scientists made use of the fact that cells react to stimuli from their environment.
