Bioinspired, 3D Printed Heart Valves

3D printed heart valves: have been created that allow the patient’s own cells to regenerate new tissue. The research team have developed a new fabrication platform that allows them to combine several exact, personalised designs and thereby fine-tune the scaffold’s mechanical properties using melt electrowriting (an advanced additive manufacturing technology). Their long-term goal is to […]

Taste receptors found in lung blood vessels could help ICU patients

Bitter taste receptors have been discovered in an unexpected area of the body, the walls of blood vessels in the lungs. The discovery could lead to a novel pharmacological target for the treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), a potentially fatal consequence of a variety of diseases.A new study conducted by Anglia Ruskin University (ARU)
