NIH Issues Research Results on Using 3-D Printing Bioreactors to Create Jawbone Tissue

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has issued research results that used 3-D printing to create bioreactors that could form bone tissue into precise shapes to heal jaw defects.  NIH noted that the jawbone is a particularly difficult site for a surgeon to repair after an injury, cancer, or bone infection.  To read the NIH announcement and summary of its research results on using 3-D printing bioreactors to create jawbone tissue, use the link below.
