Scientists first printed a living heart on a 3D printer

In three hours, Israeli experts managed to print a living heart on a 3D printer. As we see in the photo, the organ came out very small and more reminiscent in size of the heart of a rabbit.

However, according to the author of the study, the printed heart works fully. Such creations are planned to be transplanted to animals, and in the future, after special studies, to people. To create an organ, scientists transformed fat cells into stem cells and grew heart muscle cells from them.

As for other innovations on this topic, the first industrial 3D printer will be created in St. Petersburg. The units will be supplied to Russian aircraft and engine companies. The printer allows you to grow complex parts from metal powders that cannot be created in any other way.

Earlier we wrote about the fact that in one of the districts of the Yaroslavl region a three-meter chapel will be installed, which will be printed on a 3D printer.
