The first 3D printed human corneas

Researchers at Newcastle University have created the first 3D printed cornea. Based on a digital scan, they combined healthy corneal stem cells with collagen and alginate to create a bio-based ink capable of setting in just 10 minutes. While still experimental, this project could eventually revolutionize how we treat the millions awaiting corneal transplants.
