Episode 23: μ: Bioprinting

3D Printing doesn't have to be plastic, a look into the technology of printing organs.

Printing human organs? Replacing worn-out body parts with fresh, newly printed ones? This sounds like science fiction but in some ways, it's already here! From kidneys to bladders and even more complex organs the bizarre future of 3D-bioprinting is here! In this micro-materialism episode we introduce a new producer, Ramsey Issa, to help separate fact from fiction when it comes to the materials science of bioprinting.
