3Dynamic Systems' crosslinking 3D bioprinting method could one day be used to treat Microtia

A team of researchers from 3Dynamic Systems has developed a novel 3D bioprinting method that could be used in the field of reconstructive medicine, specifically to treat Microtia, a congenital deformity of the external ear. The bioprinting technique uses a dual in-situ crosslinking process and polymer bioinks to create high-resolution tissue structures.
The research paper, entitled "Dual in situ crosslinking of polymer bioinks for 3D tissue biofabrication," was recently published in the Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine and was authored by 3Dynamic Systems founder Dr. Daniel J. Thomas.
