Researchers aim to ‘print’ human skin

A recent report on CNN tells about the efforts of researchers to develop a specialized skin “printing” system. The device could be used to rebuild damaged or burned skin. In future it could be used to treat soldiers wounded on the battlefield. Work is going on at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine. The project will take another five years to make it available for public use. Another researchers from Cornell University and the Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, also working on the similar project. They also pointed out that same techniques can be used to “print” other organs as well.
Defense Department will fund $50 million for the project over the next five years.
