    With stories about everything from a three-?dimensional (3-D)-printed tracheal implant used in an infant to a 3-D-printed replacement for 75% of a man?s skull, a media firestorm is swirling around this seemingly new technology, but what exactly is 3-D printing? How is it being used today, and what is its true potential in the biomedical arena? Renowned robotics engineer Hod Lipson, coauthor of Fab... View full abstract»

    So maybe we are not all driving to work in a flying car or are being beamed up by a transporter yet, but we should be clearing out a space in the lab and perhaps in the office for a replicator. Sure, they may not work the same as the replicators on Star Trek that instantaneously pop out hot, full-course meals to suit any crew member's whim, but they can generate three-dimensional (3-D) objects to ...

    Having already made a big impact in the medical sector, three-dimensional (3-D) printing technology continues to push the boundaries of cost efficiency, convenience, and customization. It has transformed some aspects of medical device production. However, expectations of the technology are often exaggerated in the media, so we spoke to leading researchers in the field about its practical applicati... View full abstract»

    It takes only a few minutes for the NovoGen MMX to print out a chunk of human liver cells. It's a small chunk, only 4-mm wide and 20 cell layers thick, which wouldn't do much good in a human patient. But at a cellular level, this tiny swatch of machine-made flesh has all the essential ingredients of an original organ: tight hexagons of hepatocytes and fatty stellate cells and endothelial cells gat...

    It is now known that nearly half of the toll that illness takes in developed countries is linked to four unhealthy behaviors: smoking, excess alcohol intake, poor diet, and physical inactivity. These common risk behaviors cause preventable, delayed illness that then manifests as chronic disease, requiring extended medical care with associated financial costs. Chronic disease already accounts for 7... View full abstract»

    Here, we illustrate how systems and computational modeling approaches can impact behavior change and optimize interventions for health involving behavioral outcomes with two examples. The first, in “Using Sensor Data and Model Inference to Tailor Home Health Interventions for the Elderly,” is an example of integrating health behavior change variables with computational inference abou...
