Caption: Researcher examining a tissue scaffold block held by a pair of tweezers. This block of tissue scaffold was printed on a stereolithographic 3D printer. It is made from bio-active glass resin. It will be seeded with live human cells using a bioprinter to create a bio-artificial tissue. Bioprinters may one day be used to 'print' bioartificial tissues and organs for use in surgery. Photographed in 2008 at the laboratory of Professor Brian Derby, University of Manchester, UK.
