3D bioprinting amongst potential breakthrough technologies for a sustainable future


Tags:

For the 100th anniversary of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), the organisation has released its list of 10 innovative technologies predicted to change the world. Alongside nanopesticides and MOFs, 3D Bioprinting is identified as one of today’s most promising technologies. Despite being  probably the most sci-fi sounding item on the list , IUPAC highlight this technology might be capable of eventually changing the future of medical implants and organ transplants.

Researchers have already printed bones, blood vessels, and cartilage structures. While entire organs remain out of reach, large companies like L’Oreal, BASF, and Procter & Gamble are investing in skin bioprinting for creating skin grafts out of a patient’s own cells.
