Bioprinting: 3D Printing Body Parts
You may be aware of 3D printing or have seen low-cost 3D printers that can create plastic toys, replicas and objects of your own design. But did you know that 3D printing is also enabling life-saving and transforming medical procedures, which were unthinkable a few years ago? The world of medicine and biomaterials has collided with advances in 3D printing, creating a new clinical paradigm in biomedicine: 3D bioprinting. This online course tells the story of this revolution, introducing you to commonly used biomaterials and bioprinting techniques. Register at: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/bioprinting/
