3D printed scaffolds to support bone regeneration in horses

In a collaborative project scientists from the Animal Health Trust and the University of East Anglia have made 3D printed scaffolds that can be used to turn induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells into bone in the laboratory. For more information see the IDTechEx report on 3D Bioprinting 2018 – 2028: Technologies, Markets, Forecasts.

“PS cells are created by ‘reprogramming’ an adult cell, such as a skin cell, to turn back into a stem cell state where they can grow forever in the lab and turn into any cell type of the body. They could therefore produce a wide variety of cells to help replace injured and damaged tissues in regenerative medicine approaches.” said Dr Debbie Guest, Head of Stem Cell Research.
