Researchers developing 3D printer, 'bio-ink' to create human organs

 

Researchers in the UI Center for Computer aided Design's Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMTecH) group are refining equipment and techniques that may result in the 3D printing of human organs and tissue some five or 10 years from now.

 

Experts agree that rising Chinese labor costs and improving U.S. technology will gradually cause significant manufacturing activity to return to the United States.

 

When it does, a new interdisciplinary manufacturing venture called the Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMTecH) group at the University of Iowa College of Engineering’s Center for Computer Aided Design (CCAD) will likely help lead the charge.AMTecH was formed to design, create, and test—both virtually and physically—a wide variety of electromechanical and biomedical components, systems and processes.

 

Currently, the group is working on projects ranging from printed circuit boards for automobiles and aircraft to replacement parts for damaged and failing human organs and tissue, says Tim Marler, AMTecH co-director

Informative article about the topic, however it was published in the year 2011 thus making the information less accurate to the current year.

 

This technology does not sound like anything special, however I believe that it is indeed something that could save a great amount of time and money for the police force in their investigations to finding exactly what occurs at each accident.
