Are we ready for Bio Printing?
#8 of my tech predictions for 2023 When Dr. Arturo Bonilla successfully managed to implant a 3D biological printed outer ear on a 20-year-old woman in march 2022, it was a technological breakthrough with huge implications. The era of Bio Printing was officially launched. The company behind the technology: 3DBio Therapeutics, composed the implant of a 3D-printed collagen hydrogel scaffold using the patient’s own cartilage cells. Next step is a broader test on 11 patients in the US.
