Injection of cells into pancreas to eradicate insulin injection need in the type I diabetics

Encellin is working to develop a pancreatic implant capable of producing insulin to eradicate the need for insulin injections in the type I diabetic population.  While still in the clinical trial phase, the implant in mice allowed insulin producing cells

Three-Dimensional Bioprinting of Hepatic Structures with Directly Converted Hepatocyte-Like Cells

This study analyzed the efficacy of 3D bioprinting of hepatic structures within mouse models. The hepatic structures were created with a polymer scaffold imbedded with mouse-induced hepatocyte-like cells (miHeps). They wanted to determine whether there was greater expression of proteins

Easy to use 3D bioprinting technique creates lifelike tissues from natural materials

This article highlights the utilization of 3D printing to create lifelike organ models (such as blood vessels to supply gut or tumor cells) to be studied ex vivo. The researchers created such a design by printing a scaffold consisting of

Scientists design way to track steps of cells’ development

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine have developed a sort of “flight-tracker” for cells. This is allowing them to follow cell lineages as they develop and learn more about the checkpoints cells go through while growing and dividing. This
