Biotech Company 3D-Prints a Miniature Human Heart From Stem Cells

It’s not science fiction anymore: 3D-printing a human heart is now a reality. A company called Biolife4D has developed the technology to print human cardiac tissue by collecting blood cells from a patient and converting these cells to a type of stem cell called Induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) cells. The technology could eventually be used …
