Scientists 3D Print Functioning Human Heart | University of Minnesota | 3D PRINTech

At the University of Minnesota, researchers have 3D printed a functioning centimeter-scale human heart pump. Bioprinting techniques have developed tremendously in recent years, and research teams around the world are studying how such techniques could be used to cure heart conditions.
More precisely, the researchers had tried in the past to 3D print heart muscle cells that were derived from pluripotent human stem cells, in other words cells with the potential to develop into any type of cell in the body.
