How does the technology work?
How does it mature?
No DNA Rejection
Eliminates Immunosuppresant drugs
Eliminates organ donation
Lessen patient's waiting time
Expensive to both medical institutions and patients
Conflicts with moralities, cultural and religious beliefs

Printing of full functional organs will already be achieved in the near future.
In the case of the group of researchers in Washington State University, however, they believe that doctors will soon be able to produce 3D bones to replace bones with defects, to treat patients with osteoporosis and to use in dental procedures.
"A wide medical application with a higher success rate is expected for the years to come with this technology."
What is 3D Bioprinting?
BIOLOGY + 3D Printing
To create simple tissues and pieces of organs for implant
Continues to help create small-scale tissues for drug discovery and toxicity testing.
Faster printing time
