    Researchers from Harvard University have created the first heart on a chip using a 3D printer. This device will allow you to conduct experiments without using a living tissue extracted from animals. The results presented in the article published in the journal Nature Materials. Video published on YouTube-canal University.

    The organ is made of a translucent flexible polymer, designed to mimic the structure and function of cardiac tissue. Specifically, the project has created six types of ink, which can be embedded in an artificial heart microscopic sensors. The latter is able to track the runout at the impact on the chip of various drugs.
