Building Human Organs

Building Human Organs

Organovo is a company based in San Diego; California. Their latest science invention is a technology (novogen) which allows living tissue cells to be assembled into patterns and complex structures, such as organs.Organovo has partnered with Invetech. a company based in Australia, to develop a bio-printer. The device prints (places) human cells in a three-dimensional matrix to construct human tissue.”Building human organs cell-by-cell was considered science fiction not that long ago,” says Fred Davis of Invetech.Currently, the bio-printer can grow blood vessels. It is anticipated that within five years the device will construct arteries and by 2020 sophisticated organs will be built by the device.
