Where Science Meets Society

Researchers awarded NSF grant to fund 3D bioprinter

A team of researchers from the IGB’s Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering (RBTE) theme was awarded a NSF grant that will provide funding for a new 3D-bioprinting instrument.

The Major Research Instrumentation grant will fund the purchase of an EnvisionTEC 3D-Bioplotter, a bioprinting system that is essentially a 3D printer for tissues.

Researchers Develop New Approach for Studying Deadly Brain Cancer

Researchers Develop New Approach for Studying Deadly Brain Cancer

Human glioblastoma multiforme, one of the most common, aggressive and deadly forms of brain cancer, is notoriously difficult to study. Scientists have traditionally studied cancer cells in petri dishes, which have none of the properties of the brain tissues in which these cancers grow, or in expensive animal models.
