The convergence of advances in materials science, Cellular engineering and 3D printing has revolutionised how we think about medical challenges .

The assembly of a multidisciplinary team of researchers and clinicians has enabled us to develop novel approaches to cartilage regeneration, 3D printing ears , eye repair ,3D printed structures containing islet cells for transplantation to treat diabetes and now we propose to create a "brain on the bench" for drug testing.
