Scientists 3D-print human liver tissue in a laboratory, winning top prizes in NASA challenge



Scientists have successfully cultured liver tissue capable of functioning for 30 days in the laboratory as part of NASA’s Vascular Tissue Challenge.

In 2016, NASA launched this competition to find teams that could “create thick, vascularized human organ tissue in an in vitro environment to advance research and benefit drugs on long-term missions and on Earth,” according to a description of the agency’s challenge. Today (June 9), the agency announced not one, but two winners of the challenge.
