 Researchers from UK move towards 3D Printing Live Bones by Nanokick Bioreactor

Researchers at University of Glasgow, UK, have developed a method to create bone by 3D printing scaffolds, then coating them with nanolayers of stem cells and a growth factor known as BMP-2 and shaking them up in its Nanokick bioreactor. The University of Glasgow researchers have teamed up with other institutions like University of Strathclyde and the University of the West of Scotland (UW) to further enhance their work on the Nanokick bioreactor and the 3D printed bone research.
