Changing the shape of medical research and practice
At Organovo, we design functional human tissues. Our bioprinting technology enables the creation of 3D tissues that more accurately reproduce native tissues.
Our focus is on developing a range of tissue and disease models for medical research and therapeutic applications.
Bioprinting combines the synergistic potential of engineering and biology to create living human tissues that mimic the form and function of native tissues, including dense cellularity and the presence of multiple cell types.
The fully cellular tissues do not require biomaterials or scaffolds for three-dimensionality. Creation is automated and highly reproducible, consistently yielding tissues with in vivo-like micro-architecture.
Sharon Presnell discussed the use of bioprinting and 3D tissue to improve predictability in preclinical drug discovery this week at the BIO 2014 convention in San Diego
Three-dimensional (3D) printing is a 20-year-old technology whose time finally seems to have arrived.
Organovo has people in the regenerative medicine and pharmaceutical worlds really excited
As 3D fabrication technology improves, applications promise to repair, regenerate, and even replace native tissues
