Towards Kidney bioprinting
In this direction, we have started since 3 years to work on kidney bioprinting, with collaborations in Germany, Canada, and United Kingdom. Thanks to the leadership of Carlos Mota, asistant professor in the group, and his team we now have a better grip over the differentiation of stem cells into kidney progenitors to regenerate several of the specialized cells present in a kidney. We have devised new bioinks to maintain these cells alive during bioprinting and are currently studying differentiation processes in the bioprinted 3D in vitro models.
Carlos has also talked about the curent state of the art and challenges in a couplef interviews. To know more:
