Scientists at Newcastle University have 3D printed the world’s first human corneas. By creating a special bio-ink using stem cells mixed together with alginate and collagen, they were able to print the cornea using a simple low-cost 3D bio-printer. It’s hoped, after further testing, that this new technique could be used to help combat the world-wide shortage of corneas for the 15 million people requiring a transplant.
