[Music] What we’re seeing today is Bioprinting which is basically customizing the products that
are needed for repairs to be able to assist the body to get those repair parts to be individualized
and customized. Sometimes the body’s not able to repair itself
and we have to come up with alternatives that could help it to replace itself. Think about it like a building, you’re providing
the scaffolding that would help to build that particular structure the way that you want
it. The real impact about this is associated with
organ donation. Organ donation is a bottleneck when it

for a lung. So in the long term, the impact that is has
is to be able to depend less on organ donations and being able to satisfy that need ourselves.
