REGENERATIVE RELIQUARY | Bringing Bones to Life by Amy Karle




By harnessing the intelligence of human stem cells, Amy Karle created Regenerative Reliquary, a bio-printed scaffold in the shape of a human hand printed in a biodegradable pegda hydrogel that dissolves over time. The sculpture is installed in a bioreactor with the intention that human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs from an adult donor) seeded onto this design will eventually grow into tissue and mineralize into bone along this scaffold.
