Thesis Outline:

Tissue or Organ failure due to aging diseases, accidents,and birth defects is a critical medical problem.Current treatment for organ failure relies mostly on organ transplants from living or deceased donors.however,there is a chronic shortage of human organs available for transplant.Organ transplant surgery and follow-up is also expensive.And additional problem is that organ transplantation involves the often difficult task of finding a donor who is a tissue match.This problem could likely be eliminated by using cells taken from the organ transplant patients own body to build a replacement organ.This would minimize the risk of tissue rejection,as well as the need to take lifelong immunosuppressants.

Therapies based on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine are being pursued as a potential solution for the organ donor shortage. Although still its infancy,3D bioprinting offers additional important advantages beyond this traditional regenerative method. such as highly precise cell placement and high digital control of speed, resolution,cell concentration and diameter of printed cell
