Bioprinting holds the potential to enable the biofabrication of personalized organs, thus addressing the massive problem of organ waitlists and rejection. By initially focusing on "low-hanging fruit" applications of bioprinting, building off of "early-wins," and collaborating with researchers and industry, we can make a realistic impact today and propel the ecosystem into the future.
