Timelapse: Printing new ears with a 3D printer

Dutch researchers are working with the Burn Foundation to utilize 3D Printing to assist in the reconstruction of burn victims faces. Cartilage and other supportive tissue are being emulated by several biopolymers and proposed to be utilized in 3D printing to complete an ear. The researchers believe it will overcome major challenges offered by stem cell use. The researchers are looking for additional funding to complete their research.
