Kang’s team has created a novel type of bio-ink – “Biosynsphere”, whose primary goal is the personalised stem cell bio-printing to pave the way for organ regeneration.

He said, “We have successfully realized the blood vessel regeneration by relying on the 3D bio-printer, the biosynsphere technology and the data model based on cloud computing.”
