While in its early stages, bioprinting of human tissue is an emerging technology that is opening up some exciting possibilities, including the potential to one day 3D print entire human organs. This scientific objective has now grown a little bit closer, with researchers at Carnegie Mellon University reporting a breakthrough that enabled the printing of full-scale heart components that in
Cancer cells often deploy specific "don't eat me" signals to hide from immune cells. A breakthrough new study from Stanford University has homed in on a previously undiscovered signaling protein that, if effectively inhibited, may lead to new treatments for breast, ovarian, and other difficult-to-treat cancers...

Researchers at Rutgers and Rice Universities have shed some light on the mystery of how life on Earth got started. After studying proteins that are key to metabolism in modern cells, the team reverse engineered a simplified protein that may have been responsible for kickstarting the process in ancient times. And to prove the idea, they then implanted it into living bacteria and found that
Several years ago, we heard how scientists from Sweden's Chalmers University had created a 3D-printing medium made from wood fiber. Now, they've developed a new method of printing with it, producing solid material with the structure and qualities of natural wood...

An exciting breakthrough from Columbia University researchers demonstrates a new way to grow human hair follicles using novel 3D printed molds. This is the first time human hair follicle cells have been grown completely in lab conditions, opening up a potentially unlimited source of hair follicles for future hair restoration surgical procedures...

A team of scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's (LLNL) Forensic Science Center (FSC) and Michigan State University are developing a method to identify a person from a single hair taken from anywhere on the human body. Based on the measurement of hair proteins, the test is designed to provide law enforcement with a new tool in sexual assault cases... Continue Reading Brea
Transplanting any organ is, unsurprisingly, a complicated process, but lungs are particularly vulnerable to damage before being implanted. Now, researchers at Columbia Engineering and Vanderbilt University have developed a way to repair that damage, keeping the lungs of pigs alive outside the body for up to 36 hours and allowing them to bring the organ up to a transplantable quality... Con
An incredible new study from researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has for the first time found a way to transform skin cells into all three of the stem cell types that make up an early-stage embryo. This extraordinary discovery points a way toward creating an embryo without the need for an egg or sperm... Continue Reading Artificial embryos possible after embryonic stem cells
The CRISPR gene-editing system is incredibly accurate, but when there are billions of base pairs of DNA to scroll through, it's not unusual for it to be a little bit off target sometimes. Now, biomedical engineers at Duke University have created an RNA "lock" that can apparently make the system far more precise, and it works with all kinds of CRISPR variations... Continue Reading CRISPR br
Finally, after years of clumsy, clunky automated tools for “spinning,” scraping, regurgitating, and extruding low-quality content, we’ve found a solution....
