SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A University of Iowa faculty member will receive a $400,005 over the next five years to create a new 3D technology.

Ibrahim Ozbolat, an assistant professor of mechanical and industrial engineering, was chosen by the National Science Foundation to receive the 2014 Faculty Early Career Development Award.

Ozbolat is creating a technology that will create 3D-printed pancreatic endocrine tissues.. The project will bioprint human pancreatic endocrine tissues.  The project could potentially lead to alternative solutions to diabetes management.

Researchers are hoping the work could be translated into advancing organ printing technology, therefore reducing the demand for organ transplantation.
