3D bioprinted liver tissue implantation into rats

Scientists transplanted rat the liver tissue printed on a 3D printer, which gives the opportunity to transplant printed tissue to the human organism in the future. Japanese scientists from Kyushu University transplanted bio transplantation liver tissue to the rat. The breakthrough can be a fundamental step in the researching and development of the 3D bioprinting.


A new technique to 3-D print a 'living tattoo'

A 3D printing method which uses a new type of ink made from genetically programmed living cells for creating a “living tattoo” has been developed by the researchers from MIT. 


Minoxidil nanoparticles based anti-baldness technology fights against alopecia

Exclusive interview for SPINOFF.COM with Prof. (Emeritus) Aharon Gedanken, Kanbar Laboratory for Nanomaterials, Bar-Ilan University (BIUNI), about the technology that will help to grow hair on a bald surface using nanoparticles of minoxidil

This minoxidil based anti-baldness technology is a real breakthrough in the fight against alopecia. The team of professional scientists, under the strict supervision of Prof. Aharon Gedanken from the Department of Chemistry at Bar Ilan University in Israel, is now in the process of technology development. Such nanoparticle-based technology aims hair follicle, targeting at utilizing these interactions for therapeutic purposes, delivering functionalized particles selectively to the hair follicles or even to specific skin compartments and cell populations. Particle-based material targeting of hair follicles may include deposition of active minoxidil compounds in the follicular reservoir, targeting of active compounds to specific compartments within the follicular duct, e.g., sebaceous gland, stem cell region, or even targeting of specific cell populations such as perifollicular antigen-presenting cells. Professor Gedanken is sure that it will have a great success in the cosmetology because nobody tried to solve it at particle level before.

Nano-structured smart windows

A revolutіonary new type of smart wіndow wіth nano-structure that contrіbutes rewarding characteristic properties has been developed by the British scientists represented by the project leader Dr Ioannis Papakonstantinou from Electronic and Electrical Engineering Department of University College London and UCL's team wіth support from the Engіneerіng and Physіcal Scіences Research Councіl (EPSRC). The prototype of highly performing 'Biologically Inspired Nanostructures for Smart Windows with Antireflection and Self-Cleaning Properties', manufactured by researchers, has confirmed that the glass furnishes energy savіngs, cost effectіveness and antі-reflectіve propertіes. Іt wіll sіgnificantly decrease the costs for cleaning skyscrapers' windows, reducing heating bills and boosting workers productivity. This suggestive biomimetic moth-eye technology can be applіed to solar cells, monіtors, light-emitting diodes, and other optical devices in the future.


Artificial silk from whey protein

Dr. Christofer Lendel and Dr. Fredrik Lundell and colleagues from the Royal institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm with the assistance of researchers from Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) developed the process of production of artificial silk from proteins. This method results in the creation of the nanostructured protein microfibers from whey protein pieces, called nanofibrils, that band together in chains to form such high-demand fiber as silk. This innovative artificial silk production method has potential to be applied to novel biosensors or self-dissolving wound dressings.
