Using 3-D bioprinting to heal muscle trauma

A research team led by Dr. Su-Ryon Shin and Dr. Ali Khademhosseini at Harvard Medical School developed breathable 3-D muscle tissue construct that contains blood vessels and mimics living cells through bioprinting. This process can be readily applied to other areas of regenerative medicine, such as generating new organs.

This project is selected as one of the three finalists competing for the '2015 Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Innovator Awards'. The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Fund will award $100,000 to a groundbreaking researcher working diligently to improve trauma care. The wining team is selected based on online voting by people around the world, which started from August 7 and continue unit October 7.
