We should expect to see 3-D bioprinting continue to grow as an important tool for a large number of medical applications.
3D bioprinting has enormous potential to save lives.
L'Oreal announced in May it is partnering with Organovo, a San Diego-based bioprinting company, to develop 3-D printed skin tissue on which to test its cosmetics.
Organovo's 3-D bioprinting enables the reproducible, automated creation of living human tissues that mimic the form and function of native tissues in the body.
The next wave of breakthroughs is now occurring in the field of bioprinting, which involves the printing of cell- loaded replicas of human tissues for the purposes of drug testing and regenerative medicine.
He finally pointed towards the fourth level of complexity, which includes organs like heart, liver and kidneys, which are the ultimate goal for bioprinting pioneers.
Enterprises interested in these technologies should look to bioacoustic sensing, quantified self, 3D bioprinting, brain-computer interface, human augmentation, speech-to-speech translation, neurobusiness, wearable user interfaces, augmented reality and gesture control.
And the advent of bioprinting (printing with biological materials, including cells and tissues) expands the possibilities even further.
Looking more than 10 years out, 3D bioprinting, human augmentation, mobile robots and quantum computing will also drive transformational change in the potential of IT.
They previously co-founded Organovo, a San Diego-based regenerative medicine company which applies bioprinting to a range of medical applications, including drug discovery, drug testing and ultimately transplant tissues.
