Bioprinting

3D printing has come a long way in recent years, and soon it may be possible to print transplantable human organs (for more on bioprinting, click here). One company, Organovo, says it’s hoping to produce its first printed organ, a human liver, sometime this year.

How long do you think it will be before a bioprinted organ is first transplanted into a human patient?
