3D Bioprinting Cancer
Cancer, what a modern-day existential threat to humanity, is a word that triggers a cringe from the most fearless. Over the past decades in modern medicine, we have made much progress in cancer care, ranging from diagnosis, surgical advancements, to therapeutics. Despite that, cancer is surpassing heart diseases as a leading cause of death in the United States in 2020. [Ref] The demand for faster diagnostics and better treatment is driving researchers to technologies like 3D printing and 3D bioprinting.
