  1. This looks great Goli and Craig! I have joined a 3D printing Meetup group here in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and hope to find others interested in medical 3D printing of tissues. I look forward to seeing what ever you post next. Phil in Minneapolis.

    1. Thanks Phil! There are definitely some amazing innovations in the works. In the sphere of tissue engineering, two organizations we mentioned in this print feature that may be of interest to you are: Wake Forest University (http://www.wakehealth.edu/Research/WFIRM/Our-Story/Inside-the-Lab/Bioprinting.htm) and Organovo (http://www.organovo.com/). Also, the Make: Forum on G+ is a great way to find other people interested in the same thing: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/105413589856236995389


      1. Thanks Goli. Those sound like what I am looking for! I’ll read them and let you know what I think. BTW I’d like to survey medical organizations here in Minnesota (such as the Mayo Clinics and Medtronics) to see what they are doing, or planning, in this technology.
        Take Care.

          1. Oops! I can’t find the link to your and Craigs article, just the picture. Can you send a link for the article to me (or let me know where i missed it!).

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
