Lead researcher Eli Engel and IBEC researcher Bárbara Blanco are featured on RTVE for their recent research against breast cancer. Using 3D bioprinting they have created tumors from pig tissue.
We take the tissue from the pig, from the pig’s breasts, we remove its cells and we are left with only the proteins and the structure of the breast. From this we make a gel that we can print and mix with human tumor cells.Elisabeth Engel
