U of Minnesota: $2.6M in NIH Research Funding Leads to Better 3D Printed Organs

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Wed, Jan 31, 2018

On average, 20 people die each day while waiting for an organ transplant, according to the United Network of Organ Sharing. However, scientists at the University of Minnesota envision a day when organ transplants from donors will no longer be necessary. Instead, failing organs will be replaced with ones created by specialized 3D printers. In a giant step toward that goal, researchers have manufactured lifelike artificial organ models using a custom-built 3D printer. These models mimic the exact anatomical structure, mechanical properties, as well as the look and feel of real organs. This research project is supported by two, five-year NIH grants that total over $2.6 million.

Research News: U of Minnesota Grows Blood Vessels in Lab

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Nov 13, 2017

Researchers at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities have created a new lab-grown blood vessel replacement that is composed completely of biological materials, yet contains no living cells at implantation. It is the first-of-its-kind nonsynthetic, decellularized graft that becomes repopulated with the recipient’s own cells after implanted. This discovery could help tens of thousands of kidney dialysis patients each year. It could also be adapted for use as coronary and peripheral bypass blood vessels and tubular heart valves in the future.

Glaucoma Treatment Market Grows Within Texas Medical Center and U.S.

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Dec 04, 2013

The traditional glaucoma treatment market for Americans suffering from glaucoma has been limited in the past, but Texas Medical Center doctors now have access to a new, minimally invasive treatment available only at the Houston Methodist Hospital. Glaucoma causes increased fluid pressure on the eye and cause blindness if it goes untreated. Traditional treatments include eye drops and surgery, which entails cutting a small hole in the eye to drain the fluid. (Texas Medical Center)
