Researchers Create Mini-Liver From 3D Printer

Researchers from the University of  São Paulo were able to make a functional mini-liver via 3D bioprinting.

The work was conducted at the Human Genome and Stem Cell Research Center, which is one of the research, innovation and dissemination centers funded by the  São Paulo Research Foundation.

The researchers were able to create the mini-liver using human blood cells in 90 days. The technique could become an alternative way for organ transplantation in the future.
