Check out this cool video that discusses how producing synthetically designed large-scale organs may become a reality in the near future. A team of researchers led by Dr. Andrew Blakely, a surgery fellow at Rhode Island Hospital, and Jeffrey Morgan, a Brown University bioengineer, developed a device called BioP3 which can assemble large structures using small living micro-tissue components.

“A major issue facing organ transplantation is a lack of supply of organs, there simply aren’t enough to meet the need of patients that require transplantation.”  – Andrew Blakely
