Researchers are now reporting, however, that they have produced found a way to produce the “rubbery” the cartilage tissue with 3-D bioprinting and human cells and have successfully confirmed it in a in vivo mice model. The development could one day lead to precisely printed implants to heal damaged noses, ears and knees.
