New South Wales researchers are developing 3D skin printing
The University of Wollongong are developing an alternative to skin grafting to treat skin burns or serious injuries.
As skin grafting can be difficult and highly dependent on the severity of the injuries, the use of 3D printers to recreate human skin has been tested.
This technology involves printing new skin made of the patient’s own cells.
According to Eileen Wallace, PHD student at University of Wollongong told Deborah Knight on Afternoons, “The results at the moment seem really promising.”
