OUT LIVING TISSUES FOR MEDICAL RESEARCH &
Pandorum Technologies Pvt.Ltd.,,the Bangalore based bio-technology
start up working on tissue engineering,announced that it has developed
artificial tissue that performs the functions of the human liver.These 3D
printed living tissues enable affordable medical research with reduced
animal & human trial, and will eventually lead to full scale transplantable
"This is a significant milestone" said,Dr.Tuhin Bhowmick,who holds a
Ph.D from the Indian Institute of Science and Co founder of the Company.
