Did you know your bones and muscles are intrinsically connected and in uninterrupted communication to make your body properly function? How about the research on 3D bioprinting (and we’d like to emphasize on bio) to incorporate it into the medical field sooner than you may be imagining? Small changes can lead to a healthier life, and Jello could be the tissue of the future. As weird as the last part of that statement may sound, it is not even that far from the truth.

Today’s episode is both educational and mind-blowing, as Dr. Rosie Sendher and Dr. Erica Fisk sit down with Dr. Marco Brotto and Dr. Venu Varanasi to chat about the fascinating concept of bone-muscle crosstalk and the no longer futuristic term of bioprinting. Dr. Marco Brotto is a George & Mary Hazel Jay Endowed Professor, Director of the Bone-Muscle Collaborative Sciences, and the Director of the Bone-Muscle Research Center. Dr. Venu Varanasi received his Ph.D. at the University of Florida in the Department of Chemical Engineering and is currently an assistant professor of Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University.
