Silk bio-ink could help advance tissue engineering with 3-D printers

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, engineering

Advances in 3-D printing have led to new ways to make bone and some other relatively simple body parts that can be implanted in patients. But finding an ideal bio-ink has stalled progress toward printing more complex tissues with versatile functions. Now scientists have developed a silk-based ink that could open up new possibilities toward that goal.
