Israeli scientists unveil world’s first 3D-printed heart with human tissue


Times of Israel: Scientists in Israel unveiled a 3D print of a heart with human tissue and vessels on Monday, calling it a first and a “major medical breakthrough” that advances possibilities for transplants.

And in you (Abraham) all the nations of the world will be blessed” Genesis 12:3
