Scientists One Step Closer To 3-D-Printed Ovaries To Treat Infertility

A scientist holds a bioprosthetic mouse ovary made of gelatin with tweezers.

Researchers printed gelatin scaffolds into which they placed ovarian tissue, and then implanted the new organs in mice. Three out of seven female mice produced healthy offspring using the technology.
