Which country's scientists created the world's first 3D heart with the bio-material of the patient?

Answer: Scientists of Tel Aviv University of Israel

Israel have produced the world's first 3D heart from a patient's cells and biological substances.

Why is it so important?

This 3D heart is made from human cells and organic matter of the person. During the process, the patient's biological substances worked as bio-ink (the replacement of sugars and proteins to make complex tissue models by 3D printing). Although earlier 3D structures of the heart have been created, but they did not contain cells and blood vessels. This heart is as big as a rabbit heart. It is still difficult to produce such a 3D-printed active heart, which can be transplanted for a patient. The biggest challenge before the researchers is to prepare this 3D printed heart to act like a real heart. Its saliva can shrink, but they do not have the ability to push the blood. This type of heart transplant can be done initially in animals.
