How Are We Fighting Cancer with 3D Bioprinting?

(As someone dealing with cancer myself, this is most encouraging, especially as we move forward. The impact of 3D printing, especially in the bioprinting arena, is going to be profound.)

LLNL scientists have paired 3D-printed, living human brain vasculature with advanced computational flow simulations to better understand tumor cell attachment to blood vessels, the first step in secondary tumor formation during cancer metastasis.


The unique approach, developed with outside collaborators, lays the foundation for developing a predictive capability that can help clinicians and researchers anticipate the spread of cancer within individual patients, according to LLNL researchers.
