Christchurch research key to printing human body parts. 

A Christchurch research team is a step closer to regenerating human body parts with the development of a new type of “bio-ink”.

Bio-ink is the key to make human joints, cartilage and bone – the dream of the University of Otago, Christchurch, Regenerative Medicine research group led by Associate Professor Tim Woodfield.
Instead of artificial knees and hips, patients could have a regenerated joint made with human cells. Stuff.co.nz
