Volumetric Bioprinting of Complex Living‐Tissue Constructs within Seconds

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, bioprinting, biotech/medical, life extension, robotics/AI

Bioprinting in seconds.


Biofabrication technologies, including stereolithography and extrusion-based printing, are revolutionizing the creation of complex engineered tissues. The current paradigm in bioprinting relies on the additive layer-by-layer deposition and assembly of repetitive building blocks, typically cell-laden hydrogel fibers or voxels, single cells, or cellular aggregates. The scalability of these additive manufacturing technologies is limited by their printing velocity, as lengthy biofabrication processes impair cell functionality. Overcoming such limitations, the volumetric bioprinting of clinically relevant sized, anatomically shaped constructs, in a time frame ranging from seconds to tens of seconds is described. An optical-tomography-inspired printing approach, based on visible light projection, is developed to generate cell-laden tissue constructs with high viability (85%) from gelatin-based photoresponsive hydrogels. Free-form architectures, difficult to reproduce with conventional printing, are obtained, including anatomically correct trabecular bone models with embedded angiogenic sprouts and meniscal grafts. The latter undergoes maturation in vitro as the bioprinted chondroprogenitor cells synthesize neo-fibrocartilage matrix. Moreover, free-floating structures are generated, as demonstrated by printing functional hydrogel-based ball-and-cage fluidic valves. Volumetric bioprinting permits the creation of geometrically complex, centimeter-scale constructs at an unprecedented printing velocity, opening new avenues for upscaling the production of hydrogel-based constructs and for their application in tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and soft robotics.

Scientists Made a Biohybrid Nose Using Cells From Mosquitoes

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, cyborgs, health, transhumanism

💠 Japanese researchers have created a “nose” mosquito that can detect odors from tiny droplets of liquid droplets. The research could lead to the creation of Smell-O-Vision for machines and a means of diagnosing early cancer, they say. Japanese researchers have created a “nose” that can detect different odors at the same time. The team used two bubbles, each filled with oil, broken horizontally, to create a squinted figure-eight. They hope to use it to develop an artificial nose in the future.

Researchers have developed a “bionic nose” that can detect odor molecules. The team hopes to use the device as an inexpensive way to diagnose the early stages of illness. Eventually, the team wants to use their bionic nose for cancer and other health issues. They hope to make the device available to the public soon.

Biological space race: NASA doctor reveals the future of genetically edited astronauts

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, genetics

One of the scientists prodding and poking the Kelly brothers is Prof Christopher E Mason, the lead geneticist on the Twins Study. Mason’s lab at Cornell University is nothing if not ambitious. Its work centres on a “500-year plan for the survival of the human species on Earth, in space, and on other planets.”

As well as studying what happens to astronauts, it involves laying the genetic groundwork for humans to live among the stars. Mason envisions a future in which the human genome can be bioengineered to adapt to almost any environment, augmented with genes from other species that allow us to explore and settle the farthest corners of the Universe.

Scientists produce first genetically engineered marsupials

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, genetics, life extension

We probably at this point should make all animals immortal: 3.


The advance promises to unlock new insights into human biology and disease, aiding in the study of everything from the developing immune system to tissue regeneration to skin cancer.

“Studying biodiversity is not just about exploring the biology of a bunch of interesting organisms, but ultimately for a better understanding of human biology,” developmental biologist and lead study author Hiroshi Kiyonari said via email.

Our Theory Of Aging & Blood Dilution w/ Saline & Albumin | Drs. Irina & Mike Conboy Interview Ep 1

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, life extension, media & arts

In this video, Drs Irina and Mike Conboy talk about their theory of why we age and introduce Neutral Blood Exchange, which came from their original parabiosis experiments documented in a 2005 paper.

Our guests today are Drs. Irina and Michael Conboy of the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California Berkeley. their discovery of the rejuvenating effects of young blood through parabiosis in a seminal paper published in Nature in 2005 paved the way for a thriving field of rejuvenation biology. The Conboy lab currently focuses on broad rejuvenation of tissue maintenance and repair, stem cell niche engineering, elucidating the mechanisms underlying muscle stem cell aging, directed organogenesis, and making CRISPR a therapeutic reality.

$315M Biotech Company Emerges From Stealth

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, genetics

“Prime Editing is a wonderful example of the revolution in genetic medicine that we are living through,” said Robert Nelsen, co-founder and Managing Director of ARCH Venture Partners, one of several companies to fund Prime Medicine. “Gene editing technologies like this, when mature, could totally change our conception of what’s possible in treating disease.”

“This is an opportunity to take a giant step toward cures for a much wider range of diseases than previously possible,” said Stephen Knight, President and Managing Partner of F-Prime Capital, another backer of the new company.

The funds raised will be used to continue building the company, expand the capabilities of its technology platform and rapidly advance towards clinical indications. By the end of 2021, Prime Medicine expects to employ more than 100 people full-time.

Researchers Create New CRISPR Genetic Tools to Help Contain Mosquito Disease Transmission

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, genetics

University of California San Diego scientists have now developed several genetic editing tools that help pave the way to an eventual gene drive designed to stop Culex mosquitoes from spreading disease. Gene drives are designed to spread modified genes, in this case those that disable the ability to transmit pathogens, throughout the targeted wild population.


Genetics toolkit targets less researched Culex mosquitoes, which transmit West Nile virus and avian malaria.
