Ultra-fast 3D printing produces life-like organ models

Published May 7, 2021


The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), part of the National Institutes of Health, reported on research led by Ruogang Zhao, associate professor of biomedical engineering, on a new 3D printing method that is faster than the industry standard and could be used to print human tissue and organs.

“This is a significant step towards the printing of biologically active 3D tissues,” said David Rampulla, director of the NIBIB program in Synthetic Biological Systems. 

The research team included School of Engineering and Applied Sciences faculty members Stelios Andreadis, SUNY Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Jonathan Lovell, SUNY Empire Professor and associate professor, and Jun Xia, associate professor, both from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and Chi Zhou, associate professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
