In the current issue of Tissue Engineering Part A, Christ and team build on their prior work and report their second round of experiments showing that placing cells derived from muscle tissue on a strip of biocompatible material -- and then "exercising" the strip in the lab -- results in a muscle-like implant that can prompt muscle regeneration and significant functional recovery.
3D printing also provides customized orbital implants which is a biocompatible material and shows very less rejection rate after implant.
Two of the program's participants, Crystal and Ruini, have been working with one of their mentor, Biologist and Neuroscientist Emily Fan, on developing a novel biocompatible material made out of chitosan and silk, with support from OSN's President, Scott Pownall.
"Importantly, we only used completely biocompatible material to create this device.
