    Default Scientists 3D-print embryonic stem cells, pave the way for lab-made organ transplants




    3D printers already have a firm footing the commercial market, with more than 20 models available for well-heeled DIYers, and the technology's appeal isn't lost on the scientific community. A team at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland has developed a method for 3D-printing clusters of human embryonic stem cells in a variety of sizes. Researchers have successfully printed 3D cells before, but this is the first time that embryonic cell cultures, which are especially delicate, have been built in three dimensions. Human embryonic stem cells can replicate almost any type of tissue in the human body -- and the scientists at Heriot-Watt believe that lab-made versions could one day be used to make organ transplants, thereby rendering donors unnecessary. In the nearer future, 3D-printed stem cells could be used to make human tissue models for drug testing; effectively eliminating the need for animal testing. Makes that Burritob0t look a little less ambitious, doesn't it?

    "we hope and believe will have immensely valuable long-term implications for reliable, animal-free drug-testing"

    I'm all for fighting against and eliminating any kind of testing and experimentation on animals, but this alone is a very solid example of why we fail as a society. Human life has officially been declared as a lower life form than that of animals by "scientists". What kind of sick freaks are running these facilities?!
