BU Receives Biomedical Research Funding

Binghamton University will get a new 3-D printer. Governor Cuomo announces that  nine SUNY campuses will receive $900,000 in funding for biomedical research.

Six different projects will receive money across the state.According to biomedical engineering doctor Kaiming Ye, the end goal is to create a 3-D printer that can make human organs for transplanting.

One of the big hurdles for organ transplantation is immuno-rejection. When the patient is the recipient to receive organs from other donors, the immuno-system does not match and the host will reject it."
 
Dr. Ye says that 3-D printing organs could solve this rejection issue because organs could be customized for specific patients. Ye hopes to have the printer built within the year so that his team can begin pre-clinical trials.
