The Wake Forest is for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) is a well-known institute for science. They use 3D printing technologies with nanotechnology and gene editing for biomanufacturing tissue, cell therapies, diagnostics, drug discovery.
According to Anthony Atala, MD, Chair, and Wake Forest School of Medicine Institute Director, “We have many challenges to meet, but are optimistic about the ability of the field to have a significant impact on human health. We believe regenerative medicine promises to be one of the most pervasive influences on public health in the modern era.”

According to Ezri Tarazi, an industrial design professor at the Technion—Israel Institute of Technology, who is collaborating with other researchers from his university, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and Bar-Ilan University on the project, “As a diver, I was seeing the early signs of this five years ago. I was thinking, how can we take a reef that’s totally collapsing—which means there are no branches of corals anymore because they collapse, and fish cannot hide—and how can we reignite life in it? Because I’m an industrial designer, the idea to print corals was the first thing coming to mind.”
