PostHuman: 3D Printed Tissues

Synopsis. In “Posthuman,” we ask some of the most important names in science to help us peer through and envision what the world of tomorrow looks like. From the ability to see through walls and heal ourselves with robotic immune systems, to the use of 3D printers to generate replacement organs, “Posthuman” encapsulates a buffer zone between what is here today, and what is just around the corner.

In our first segment, we spoke to Ali Khademhosseini, associate professor at Harvard-MIT, at the 2014 Blavatnik Awards. Khademhosseini is pioneering the push to develop 3D printed tissues and organs. His team was among the first to successfully 3D-print blood vessels. This video was first published to YouTube on 4 October 2014. (source)
