I'm a student editor for Wikipedia. I've decided to take on this article as my project for the course. My plans for the future are to edit the process section. To do this, I plan to separate the process into three different subheadings, pre-bioprinting, bio-printing. In addition, I'd like to expand on the process of bio-printing, expressing how the cells are first printed in spheroids, then as the cells grow, the spheroids combine into tissue. Hopefully, the commons has a picture I can use to help depict this process.
I plan to add a small section talking about the types of printers used in 3D bioprinting. I will give a sentence or two on each printer and what they are used for in 3D bioprinting.
In addition, I will do some reorganizing of the current sections to better fit the lay out of the article. For example, I am planning on moving the further advancements under the section Applications. I feel like this section of the article makes more sense in this section.
If time permits, I'd like to expand more on the recent developments of 3D bioprinting, such as Maxillofacial Applications in the ears, face, eyes, etc. If possible, I'd also like to expand on the recent developments of 3D bioprinting organs.
In addition, I hope to create a graph to help easily relate what each printer is effective at doing.
Later, if there is any media on the Commons, I'd like to incorporate some photos of 3D printing.
I plan to begin to edit on April 8th, 2016.
