A new 3D muscle model will allow the study of aging and the evaluation of drugs and cosmetics

IBEC researchers develop a three-dimensional model of muscle tissue using bioprinting and tissue bioengineering techniques that allow reproducing their strength, contraction and aging profiles. The new model will have potential applications in fields such as biomedicine, cosmetics and robotics. In addition, it will open the doors to the study of morphological and functional alterations caused by muscle aging.
