Japan-based Cyfuse raises $12 million for 3D human tissue printing

Despite the developments we’ve been seeing in the medical sector for various 3D printing applications including prosthetics, physical ‘visualizations’ and others, many are born out of a research lab and have to go through several financial hoops before they are able to be used regularly by medical professionals. Among other potential financial setbacks, doctors need to be trained and facilities need to be updated in order to make these 3D printing advancements viable solutions in today’s modern medical facilities. On the flipside, those that do in fact get funded are viable to be good signs of how 3D printing will change the near future of medicine.
