Researchers develop handheld 3D bioprinter for treating skeletal muscle injuries

A group of biomedical engineers and researchers have developed a handheld 3D bioprinter that can potentially help surgeons completing musculoskeletal surgical procedures.  The bioprinter, developed by Dr. Ali Tamayol, an associate professor at the University of Connecticut, allows surgeons to deposit hydrogel-based scaffolds—or materials to help support cellular and tissue growth—directly into the weakened sections […]
