Technologies disrupt industries with innovative solutions and accelerate us toward a better future. Today’s advances in bio and nano technology, pharmaceuticals, information technologies and novel medical devices significantly contribute to the improvement of healthcare around the globe. The latest innovations in science and medicine give possibilities to affectively diagnose, prevent and cure disease; creating new drugs and medicine that can lessen symptoms.
Recently an AI-driven 3D bioprinting technology company Aether has partnered with University College London (UCL) and Loughborough University to develop new and cost efficient nanoprinting technology for pharmaceutical and medical applications. The new type of bioink with nanoparticles can fulfill a number of functions, such as being used for nanosurgical tools, as a delivery system for pharmaceuticals and bioactives, or as a mechanical and structural support system. According to Aether, ‘by adding nanotechnology capabilities to its multi-tool 3D printer, more applications will be opened up, going beyond what is currently possible using nanoprinting processes.’
Other relevant breakthrough features robots that can grow human organs. Scientists at the University of Washington School of Medicine have developed an automated system where robots produce human mini-organs from stem sells, enabling to mass produce “organoids” and expand the use of mini-organs in research and drug discovery. “This is a new ‘secret weapon’ in our fight against disease”- the researcher Benjamin Freedman.
