Researchers create functional 3D-printed ear

Researchers at Princeton University are integrating silver nanoparticles and tissue to create functional ears using off-the-shelf 3D printing equipment. The technique could replace the conventional medical approach of building synthetic organs through use of polymer scaffolds. That approach, which also uses plastic fibers is moving into the mainstream. Most recently a two-year-old girl received a synthetic windpipe at Children’s Hospital of Illinois (Peoria, IL).
