Developed a method of creating a retina with the help of 3D printing

The Us national Institute of view, constantly looking for new ways of dealing with the visually impaired and spends a lot of time and money on research and development. One of the most successful work in recent time has become a living retina of the human eye using 3D-bioprinting.

Disease of the retina may be different. Some of them are called diseases, some appear with age, but they somehow need to be treated, because the world is a lot blind and visually impaired people for whom technology print living retina can be a salvation.

The Institute has launched a program in which began to collect studies by American scientists on methods of treatment of the retina. Despite the abundance of innovative approaches, best recognized project of scientists from the University of Maryland — their method was not only innovative, effective and simply reproducible.

The Proposed method allows you to create a layerwise 3D printing live retinal of several layers of Mature neurons. This method may be useful not only in trials but also to treat a number of diseases.

The Founders of the program within which the research was conducted, we intend to continue the competition, so for the next few years will provide researchers a million dollars so they can continue working and ultimately to improve their development.
