About the Lattice this week: We shared the news behind this bioprinted liver-like structure in The Lattice Issue 87 a few weeks ago. Researchers at the University of Buffalo developed a 3D printing method that is 10-50 times faster than existing techniques using hydrogels. In the photo, the researchers used the technique to 3D printing a liver model with internal vascular structures. “Our method allows for the rapid printing of centimeter-sized hydrogel models. It signiﬁcantly reduces part deformation and cellular injuries caused by the prolonged exposure to the environmental stresses you commonly see in conventional 3D-printing methods,” says the study’s other co-lead author, Chi Zhou, associate professor of industrial and systems engineering.⠀Researchers say the method is particularly suitable for printing cells with embedded blood vessel networks, a nascent technology expected to be a central part of the production of 3D-printed human tissue and organs.
