3D printing of biological tissue and organs

3D printing is a very versatile tool. We’ve seen airplane components and impossible designs being realized, with this potential within the designers’ imagination and at their hands’ reach. In biotechnology a tool of such creative power is very welcome among a laboratory’s arsenal. Experts and researchers are finding new ways to use the technology of 3D bioprinting to create complex tissues and even functional organs.

At the Singularity University Summit Europe, organized by the Goni Y Rey Foundation with Singularity University in Seville, we met with Raymond McCauley, chair of the Biotechnology track at Singularity University to talk about the promise and the challenges of this exciting field.
