Storyboard Text

  • Claim/Evidence/Reasoning
  • Claim: We believe that 3D printing of organs and successfully transplanting them can be a major scientific breakthrough. Many Americans are waiting for a transplant, and this could save their lives.
  • Evidence: In 2001, Luke Massela received a working bladder from Dr. Anthony Atlanta. Atlanta is a very experienced doctor on this field. Luke still has the bladder in him, which saved him from a lifetime of dialysis.
  • Reasoning: Our reasoning for believing that 3D organs can save many people are the past experiences, the amount of research conducted, and the perfection of the product over the years.
  • Background
  • 3D printing of human organs began a few years back. These bio printings are mainly used to help out patients without a bladder or a kidney. 90% of people waiting on the transplant list are waiting for kidneys, and many are dying everyday.
  • Moral/Commercial/Industrial
  • Moral: One of the main sources of embryonic stem cells that are used in research nowadays is the collection of cells from abortion.
  • Commercial: he best thing about 3D printed organs are that all that is basically needed is a small bit of one’s cells and the printer. It is not only necessary to have a biologically, physically, and chemically able product, but introducing it to the world would be the next step.
  • Industrial: The industrial part of 3D printing is the making of the printers themselves. If every hospital had one or two 3D printers, there could be a mass making of necessary organs, and many people would survive.
  • Physics
  • Physics: The overall product needs to have sustainability in the body. The biomaterial needs to be strong enough to hold up the cells, it needs to be shock resistant, and needs to be ready to take the initial heating of the cells.
  • Chemistry
  • Chemistry: In order to have some kidney transplants, there needs to be very distinct biomaterials. These have to be made to stand human temperature, not dissolvable by bodily fluids. these also need to be able to let blood vessels flow in and out of the structure. These materials took many years to make and are now being put to use.
  • Biology
  • Biology: The Biology behind 3D printing is how the actual printing is done. What happens is a very small amount of cells are taken from your own body (the patient), and are then grown out of your body until there are enough to make the necessary organ.
