Holographic sound fields shape 3D matter without a touch

3D printing is about to revolutionize the way we fabricate products. Building up objects point-by-point (also called additive manufacturing) enables the fabrication of single parts of arbitrary shape and composition without slow and complicated machining steps. The realm of 3D printing is still young and... click to read more

Forced to react: 3D printing can stretch a single cell

A cell is a tiny compartment, the most fundamental architectural unit of life. Like in the context of a whole body, every cell is highly interactive with its surroundings. As a result, cells gather and form functional communities such as tissues and organs. In those communities,... click to read more

How to print a brain - the initial steps

To understand the biological processes that take part within living organisms, and also as an alternative method to animal experimentation, researchers are trying to develop new models that mimic real tissues and organs, and that behave as the real ones. This field of research, tissue... click to read more
