Israeli scientists created the first 3-D heart of human tissue

Israeli scientists are pushing innovation even further. Scientists at Tel Aviv University have printed the first ever 3D heart. A printed heart with cells, blood vessels, ventricles, and chambers. The printed heart is made of human tissue from a patient’s cells. It is the first time anyone has successfully engineered and printed an entire heart, says lead research Professor Tal Dvir. The 3D heart is not large enough for a human. But a larger heart for humans can be made using the same technology. “Our results demonstrate the potential…for engineering personalized tissue and organ replacement in the future”-Prof. Dvir said.

Meanwhile, Israeli regenerative medicine company CollPlant previously filed a US patent application for “biological ink”. A design for 3D printing of tissues and organs. The bio-ink is a plant-based technology,  that mimics human collagen. Collagen is a structural protein in connective tissues. CollPlant is currently working on developing bio-printed lungs for organ transplants.
