3D Bioprinting- Printing for Life

OneBeacon first covered the topic of 3D printing in a previous whitepaper published in February 2014. Since that time, technological advancements now allow us to manufacture with an increasing number of materials using a variety of different technologies. Furthermore, 3D printers continue to drop in price, operate more quickly and produce more complicated and larger structures. However, the core technology remains unchanged—additive manufacturing or depositing materials in layers to form a finished product. In this paper, we explore the emerging ability to 3D print using biological materials and thereby build biological components and subsystems.

The Power of Containment - A Multitude of Storage Options for Renewable Energy

The idea of capturing energy for later use is certainly not a new concept. From gathering and storing plants and seeds until needed to fuel our bodies with energy, to capturing wind and solar power to feed our modern-day needs for electricity, this approach is well-established.

The United States is continuously looking to expand energy generating technologies, specifically those that offer renewable options.

Microbiome: What is your gut telling you?

We live in a time where medical technology is evolving faster than we can imagine. For that we have exceptional and dedicated scientists and researchers to thank. In 2008, the Human Microbiome Project was established, “with the mission of generating resources that would enable the comprehensive characterization of the human microbiome and analysis of its role in human health and disease.”

Artificial Intelligence: How real can it get?

Our fascination with artificial intelligence (AI) has existed for over 50 years – whether in the form of a robot, software system or some nebulous entity. AIs have been shown as entities that can be benevolent (Star Wars’ R2D2 and C3PO), malevolent (Skynet from Terminator) or simply misunderstood (HAL 9000 from 2001 – A Space Odyssey).
