Kidney Engineering Technology for New Tissue Replacement Therapies
Trestle Biotherapeutics licensed 3D bioprinting, and stem cell and kidney organoid engineering methods to help it create kidney repair and replacement therapies. These could become new standard-of-care options beyond dialysis and kidney transplants for patients with kidney failure.
Video/AnimationReConstruct – 3D Bioprinted Vascularized Fat Tissues for Breast ReconstructionBreast cancer affects 15% of all women. Current options for breast reconstruction are insufficient and have poor patient outcomes. A research team at the Wyss Institute is addressing this clinical need by fabricating vascularized adipose tissue flaps for therapeutic use. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard University
Audio/PodcastDisruptive: 3D BioprintingThere are roughly 120,000 people in the United States on waiting lists for live-saving organ transplants, with only about 30,000 transplants happening every year. To address this great challenge of organ shortages, a team at the Wyss Institute led by Core Faculty member Jennifer Lewis, Sc.D., is developing a method for 3D bioprinting organ tissues...
Video/AnimationA Swifter Way Towards 3D-printed Organs20 people die waiting for an organ transplant every day in the US, but lab-grown organs so far lack the cellular density and functions required to make them viable replacements. The new SWIFT method from the Wyss Institute and Harvard SEAS solves those problems by 3D printing vascular channel networks directly into living tissue constructs,...
