FIRST 3D HEART WITH HUMAN TISSUE

This is truly amazing. Medicine and technology are
advancing at breakneck speed. Hopefully in the
next 10 years or so, we will be able to manufacture
human organs, alleviating the organ transplant
shortage problem.

A team of Tel Aviv University researchers revealed the heart, which was made using a patient’s own cells and biological materials.

A team of Israeli researchers has “printed” the world’s first 3-D vascularized, engineered heart.

On Monday, a team of Tel Aviv University researchers revealed the heart, which was made using a patient’s own cells and biological material. Until now, scientists have successfully printed only simple tissues without blood vessels.

“This is the first time anyone anywhere has successfully engineered and printed an entire heart replete with cells, blood vessels, ventricles and chambers,” said Prof. Tal Dvir of TAU’s School of Molecular Cell Biology and Biotechnology, Department of Materials Science and Engineering in the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, and the Sagol Center for Regenerative Biotechnology, who was the lead researcher for the study.

He worked with Prof. Assaf Shapira of TAU’s Faculty of Life Sciences, and Nadav Moor, a doctoral student. Their research was published in Advanced Science.
