Researchers Use 3D Mapping to Measure Growth and Folding Patterns in Pre-Term Babies’ Brains

3D printing has been used often in pediatric surgeries, but it’s also been put to work in difficult medical cases where a baby hasn’t even been born yet. A collaborative research team based at Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) has tested a new method, using 3D technologies, that could be used to make new diagnostic... Read More »

3D bioprinting deemed an important tool for understanding brain disease

3D bioprinting could be the exact tool that researchers need to discover the cause of Alzheimer’s disease and strokes. Though animal models exist for the purpose of neurovascular research, a technical review written by a team at the University of Manchester in the UK makes the case for human cell models that can be studied...
