Newswise: Novel bioprinter shows potential to speed tissue engineering

Novel bioprinter shows potential to speed tissue engineering

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Researchers have found a way to speed engineered-tissue creation using a novel bioprinter built for $2,000, they report in the journal Micromachines. Building blocks for the tissue are pre-grown spheroids of human induced-pluripotent stem cells that contain 200,000 cells per spheroid.

Designing Workplaces with Sound Disturbances in Mind

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Workplaces are full of sound, most of which is not helpful to workers trying to do their jobs. Scientists are using physics to understand how conversation, music and other ambient noise is experienced by individuals in a variety of work situations. Takeshi Akita, of Tokyo Denki University, will present a talk on “Effects of sound source and its direction on subjects’ impression of soundscape in workplace” at the 178th ASA Meeting.
