3D bioprinting and cancer in the media

IBEC researchers led by Elisabeth Engel are in the media for their new tool against breast cancer: 3D bioprinting of tumors using pig tissue. The study, led by group leader Elisabeth Engel, makes it possible to recreate human breast tumors using tissue of female pig breast. This opens the door to the manufacture of artificial … Read more

A new tool against breast cancer: 3D bioprinted tumors using pig tissue 

Researchers at IBEC manage to recreate the complex composition of human breast tumors in the laboratory using tissues from female pig breasts. This new model will allow, among other applications, the production of artificial tumors to study the development of cancer and metastasis, and immunosuppression processes, as well as being an excellent platform for testing drugs against the disease.
