3D-Printed Living Skin With Blood Vessels Included. In the opinion of Pankaj Karande, an associate professor of chemical and biological engineering and a member of the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS), who led this research at Rensselaer, “Right now, whatever is available as a clinical product is more like a fancy Band-Aid. It provides some accelerated wound healing, but eventually, it just falls off; it never really integrates with the host cells.”

    Though it is cool that technology is able to do this, I think it is a little too much like playing God, and really kind of have a problem with the idea as a whole. It’s getting a little too out there for me.
