FAMU Researchers Are First in U.S. to 3D Print Human Cornea

Florida A & M University’s Mandip Sachdeva and his team are the first researchers in the United States to 3D print a human cornea. They also developed a process that prints corneas faster and with greater outputs than recent British cornea designs.

Cornea transplants are among the most successful tissue transplants. However, due to a lack of donors, only one cornea is available for every 70 needed. Sachdeva’s research could increase cornea supply not only for transplants but also for drug testing, virtually eliminating the need for animal testing for cornea research.
