A photo of a handheld skin bioprinter. Handheld skin bioprinters deposit "tissue sheets" in situ directly over wounds, allowing for more efficient treatment and quicker healing. Researchers led by Navid Hakimi of the UofT Dept. of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering are further developing this technology for clinical/commercial use.
