A team of scientists in Philadelphia are 3D printing cancerous tumors in order to better understand them. Up until now most scientists were using 2D sheets to test new therapies, but tumors are an entirely different structure that made the 2D sheets inadequate. The Drexel team has started producing 3D cervical tumors that will help analyze the behavior of the cancer far more accurately.

The surface hasn’t even been scratched on the amazing possibilities 3D printing. This is yet another astonishing example of it’s fast moving future. Will 3D printing be a major force in cancer research? Learn more about what the Drexel team is doing by clicking here.
