Developed a method for creating a living retina using the 3D-printing

The US National Institute of constantly looking for new ways to deal with the visually impaired and spends a lot of time and money on research and development. One of the most successful works of recent years was the creation of a living retina of the human eye with the help of 3D-biopechati.

Developed a method for creating a living retina using the 3D-printing

retinal diseases may be different. Some of them are caused by disease, some appear with age, but all of them one way or another should be treated, because a lot of blind and visually impaired people in the world, for which a print live retina technology can be salvation.

The Institute launched a program in which the research began collecting American scientists concerning the methods of treatment of the retina. Despite the abundance of innovative approaches to better recognize the project scientists from the University of Maryland - it is their way was not only an innovative, efficient, but simply reproduced. The proposed method allows you to create a method of layered 3D-print live retina of several layers of adult neurons. Such a method may be useful not only in testing drugs, but also to treat a variety of diseases.

The founders of the program under which research intend to continue the competition, so for the next few years, researchers will allocate a million dollars, so that they can continue to work and ultimately improve their development.
