这个世界上每天都有数以万计的人在排队等待器官移植,然而鲜活的人体器官总是供不应求。因此,科学家一直试图人培育出人体器官。然而这里却有个问题,肌肉组织培养起来很容易,不过怎样培育繁复庞杂的血管体系呢?今天,来自悉尼大学,哈佛大学,斯坦福大学和 MIT 的一些科学家便宣传他们用 3D 打印成功培养了人体的血管组织。 In each day, tens of thousands of patients all around the world are waiting for organ transplantation, but live body organs are in short supply. Therefore, scientists are trying to grow body organs all the time. However there exists a problem: the muscular tissue is easy to grow, but how […]
kristine petersone's insight:

In spite of the immaturity, the technology is still a great improvement in artificial cultivation of organs. Perhaps in the near future, we will see the application of 3D-printed body organs in the medical field.

Bio-robot Comes!

Bio-robot Comes! | Check in and Unlock Your Room with the Mobile Terminal | Scoop.it
美国伊利诺伊大学的研究人员宣布,他们在实验室培养出来的骨骼肌肉细胞来行走的微型机器人。这个机器人由生物和机械的部分组成,靠电流来控制,利用肌肉伸缩推动自身行走。 Researchers from the University of Illinois recently announced they have developed a micro robot driven by skeletal muscle cells. This robot is composed of biological and mechanical parts, controlled by electric current and driven to walk by muscle extension & contraction. 2012 年时,研究人员曾经用老鼠的心脏细胞研发出类似的生化机器人,不过心脏细胞收缩频率太高,微型机器人不太受控制。这次他们改用了比较活跃的人体的骨骼细胞,机器人的可控性较好。 In 2012, researchers developed a similar bio-robot with mouse’s cardiac cells […]
kristine petersone's insight:

Theoretically, this technology is very suitable for biochemical machines and the researchers are studying on how to use this technology to develop equipment for medical and environmental protection.
