Scientists have used 3D-printed ovaries to successfully restore fertility for the first time in what they call “the holy grail of bioengineering for regenerative medicine”.

A female mouse’s ovaries were removed and replaced with 3D printed bioprosthetic ones using gelatin as the “ink” and using eggs from different mice — enabling it to ovulate, conceive pups and give birth, the United States researchers said.
