2016.04.28.

Baltimore, MD - The Regenova 3D bioprinter has been installed in Dr. Hibino’s lab in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Hibino’s lab will develop scaffold-free multilayer functional engineered cardiac tissue created from cell spheroids consisting of iPS cell-derived cardiomyocytes, endothelial cells, pericytes, and fibroblasts using a 3D bioprinter. This will constitute a significant step toward a new generation of alternative stem cell treatment for heart failure.

Narutoshi Hibino, M.D.
Dr. Hibino is a cardiac surgeon whose area of expertise is congenital heart surgery. He is also an expert in tissue engineering for cardiovascular research. For more details: http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/profiles/results/directory/profile/0554560/narutoshi-hibino
