Esophageal tissue can be grown in vivo from human and mouse cells, say researchers

In a first step toward future human therapies, researchers at The Saban Research Institute of Children's Hospital Los Angeles have shown that esophageal tissue can be grown in vivo from both human and mouse cells. The study has been published online in the journal Tissue Engineering, Part A.

Jason Kelly's curator insight, March 27, 2015 12:24 AM

The combination of Bio-tech and 3D printing could create something that would be widely used by military forces and possibly emergency services back home. It shows that there is no limit to the diversity of creations 3D printing can achieve.

Strong, tough and stiff bioinspired ceramics from brittle constituents : Nature Materials : Nature Publishing Group

Strong, tough and stiff bioinspired ceramics from brittle constituents : Nature Materials : Nature Publishing Group | Bio inspired Technology | Scoop.it
The toughness of ceramic materials can be improved by introducing a polymeric or metallic ductile phase, yet most often this is at the expense of strength, stiffness and high-temperature stability. Now, a simple processing route based on widespread ceramic processing techniques is shown to produce bulk ceramics that mimic the structure of natural nacre and have a unique combination of high strength, toughness and stiffness, even at high temperatures.
