Engineers 3D-print a New Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening

A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver’s sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling. The work was published the week of Feb. 8 in the online early edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Researchers said the advance could help pharmaceutical companies save time and money when developing new drugs.”
