Win Win Win for cancer puzzle magazine

A Nottingham woman has turned her own experience of breast cancer into something positive to help others by launching her own puzzle magazine – the ‘Barrowby Bamboozler’- for patients, supporting vital research and promoting businesses into the bargain.

Could 3D printed hair follicles help with hair loss?

Interesting BBC article about using hair follicles created by a process similar to 3D printing could one day be used as implants, L'Oreal has said. "The cosmetics firm is partnering with a French bio-printing company called Poietis, which has developed a form of laser printing for cell-based objects.
