Development of an open-source 3D stereolithographic bioprinter device

A recent work conducted by Brighter project researchers at Goethe University Frankfurt, Louise Breideband, Levin Hafa Francesco Pampaloni and colleagues, describes the development of an open-source bioprinter device based on a consumer-grade 3D light stereolithographic (SL) printer. This new SL bioprinter can produce complex constructs that preserve cell viability and recapitulate the physiology of tissues.

Discovered two limbal stem cell populations that control corneal homeostasis and wound healing processes

Ruby Shalom-Feuerstein, Anna Altshuler and Aya Amitai-Lange, the workforce of Brighter project at Technion, Israel, led a work that has just been published in the prestigious journal Cell Stem Cell. They describe for the first time the existence of two limbal stem cell populations that have different characteristics and functions in the maintenance of the cornea. This pioneering study opens the doors to the development of accurate treatments for corneal disorders.
