A multidisciplinary approach to the generation of organs is providing researchers with the tools to accelerate the application of regenerative therapies to often intractable medical problems – such as the dearth of organs available for transplantation. Using 3D printers and stem cells, researchers, such as Dr. Darryl D’Lima of the Scripps Clinic and Dr. Boland of the University of Texas at El Paso are ‘printing’ tissue and organs; developing techniques and processes they hope will allow them to create organs and tissue for human transplantation. Dr. Boland, who has done much of the basic research on bioprinting technologies said, “I think it is the future for regenerative medicine”.

The potential clinical applications of this interdisciplinary approach will be widespread as researchers continue to advance technologies using stem cells thereby accelerating therapies for many traumas, injuries and debilitating diseases. To learn more about the utility of stem cells, how regenerative medicine is shaping the future of medicine, and how you can safely preserve your own stem cells for your future health, visit or call 877-783-6728 (877-StemSave) today.
