Cornell University biomedical engineer Lawrence Bonassar's lab is printing ears. He first takes a 3-D image to determine the ear's geometric pattern. Then, he prints ear tissue in layers composed of ink with living cells.

"This is such a win-win for both medicine and basic science, demonstrating what we can achieve when we work together," says the study's other lead author, Dr. Lawrence J. Bonassar, associate professor and associate chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University.
Dr. Spector and Dr. Bonassar have been collaborating on bioengineered human replacement parts since 2007, and Dr. Bonassar has also been working with other Weill Cornell physicians.
To make the ears, Dr. Bonassar and his colleagues first took a combination laser scan and panoramic photo of an ear from twin girls, which provided a digitized 3D image of their ears on a computer screen.
"The process is fast," Dr. Bonassar says.
"The innovation in this study is two-fold," says Dr. Bonassar.

Lawrence Bonassar, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at Cornell University's College of Engineering. Dr. Bonassar's research focuses on the regeneration and analysis of musculoskeletal tissues, including articular cartilage, intervertebral disc, and bone. Dr. Bonassar joined Cornell University after five years on the faculty of the Center for Tissue Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He completed postdoctoral fellowships in the Orthopaedic Research Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Center of Biomedical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ("MIT"). Dr. Bonassar currently serves on the editorial board of the journal Tissue Engineering. Dr. Bonassar earned his Ph.D. and M.S. from MIT's School of Material Science and Engineering and a B.S. from John Hopkins University's School of Material Science and Biomedical Engineering.

Cornell Professor Lawrence J. Bonassar, Ph.D.
Cornell Professor Lawrence J. Bonassar presented about "3D Fabrication Technologies for Tissue Regeneration. We wrote about Bonassar's research in February when he published the concept of 3D printing a human ear.
In his presentation, Bonassar provided the crowded conference hall with an overview of the key bioprinting motivations and applications.
There are approximately 5 million surgeries per year in the US to replace damaged tissues. This is a huge market opportunity for synthetic, bioprinted implants. His team is already looking at research such as replacing spinal discs, demonstrated in rats and dogs, or growing organic tissue like a human ear.
During the Q&A, Bonassar was asked: "This is great research, but is there a way to accelerate it into the marketplace? Bonassar immediately responded, "Yes, money.
