Researchers Say They Can Use Stem Cells in 3D Printed Scaffolds to Repair Your Joints

What researchers call infrapatellar fat pad adipose stem cells, used in conjunction with 3D printing technology, are being employed to encourage the formation of cartilage in human tissues.

The technique uses 3D scaffold-like polymeric structures to provide an engineering framework which results in the formation of 3D tissue blocks they say can be used to repair cartilage.
