Chinese Company Introduces Bioprinted Dura Mater for Use in Brain Surgery

Whatever value you place on the human mind, the human brain is a wondrous thing. As it sits in the skull, it is protected only by a thin layer of tissue called the Dura Mater. This tissue is divided into two layers, a superficial layer which is the membrane of the inside of the skull, and a deep layer known as the meningeal layer that protects the brain itself.
