Need some new muscle? We’ll print that for you.In a tremendous stride forwards for the field of regenerative medicine, researchers in the U.S. have managed to invent a 3D printer capable of churning out human-scale, living tissues that survived and integrated when implanted into an animal. While it’s still early days, the team demonstrated that the tissues developed the right strength and function required for human application, raising the possibility that the technique could one day be used to help people whose tissue has been damaged by disease or trauma.

Scientists from the University of California at Los Angeles claim to have developed a new technique for detecting cancer in a single drop of a person’s saliva.
