The University of Huddersfield is part of a 3D bioprinting research project that could reduce the cost and speed up the creation of tissue-compatible artificially engineered organs with the potential to save thousands of lives.

The 3D bioprinting process has been used for this purpose for many years but has so far failed to match body tissue—leaving patients awaiting natural organ transplants, dependent on immunosuppressants, and prone to infection as well as increased risk of cancer.

Creating microfluidic tissue overcomes this issue, but is currently expensive and labor-intensive to manufacture. Dr. Amirpasha Moetazedian from the University’s School of Computing and Engineering has been working alongside partners from the University of Birmingham and Polytechnic University of Milan to develop an agile...
