Carlos Garcia Pando's curator insight, October 5, 2013 9:58 AM

Short promol video interview about organ printing, the present and the future. as far as I know nobody has printed functional kidneys yet although they mention it here. 

Anyway, it's great to see this happening

It's a familiar scenario -- a patient receives a medical implant and days later, the body attacks the artificial valve or device, causing complications to an already compromised system.
Jacob Blumenthal's insight:

Researchers from the University of Washington developed new zwitterionic hydrogels that resist the foreign-body reaction.

The goal of regenerative medicine, or tissue engineering, is to create or regrow tissues and organs to ease transplant shortages or treat conditions that do not have an effective cure.
Jacob Blumenthal's insight:

The bioengineered windpipe operation  had also involved surgery on the girl’s esophagus, which never healed properly. She underwent another operation a month ago to correct the problem and unfortunately, died from complications arising from the second operation.

Prof. Molly Shoichet (photo courtesy of Shoichet Lab) One of the challenges facing stem cell researchers is how to ensure that cells delivered to patients don't die after transplantation to the point of care.
Jacob Blumenthal's insight:

Prof. Shoichet is one of the scientific leaders in the field of biomaterials for tissue engineering,
