Stem Cells Utilized to Create BioBots

Biobot moving as a muscle

An interdisciplinary approach at the University of Illinois enabled researchers to combine 3D printing and stem cells to create “biobots”.  A “biobot” is defined as a biological machine; in this case it was made with hydrogel, heart stem cells, and a 3D printer.   In a scene reminiscent of the 1966 sci-fi movie ‘The Fantastic Voyage’ the research points to the development of small [tiny] ‘biobots’ that could travel within the body identifying cancers or toxins and enabling precision delivery of drugs or other treatments.
