Regenerative medicine just got a brand new toy: the skin printer! The device, laying down cells in similar ways used by ink-printing technologies, works for humans in the same way in works for the mice and pigs who were on trial in Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine’s laboratories in the last years. Good news for all the unhealed wounds, who now have a second chance!

Technical details are to be found here.
