We are facing a global health crisis today due to the shortage of organs. This problem exists across the board, from the first world to the third world. The fact is that we are living longer due to advances in modern medicine that occur at a staggering pace. As we age our organs simply tend to fail more. Basic economic principle have come into effect and in a nutshell, there aren’t enough organs to go around. Demand for transplant worth organs has skyrocketed. In the last 10 years, the number of patients needing a transplant organ has doubled, while in the same time the actual number of transplant operations has hardly gone up.

This shortage has pushed more and more scientists to dedicate their research to a field called “Regenerative Medicine”. Groundbreaking advances are making their way closer towards practical implementation. In my lifetime, I expect to see this science play a major role in changing the world as we know it. The moral debates will rage! Individuals will be forced to examine ethics. For this reason, I will discuss the concept of “Bioprinting” in my essay, as well as argue that all of mankind should accept these changes with open arms.
Currently, I work at a Venture Capital Firm. We invest in early stage growing companies who deal in next generation technologies. That includes but is not limited to, Financial Technology, Digital Currencies, Cloud Computing, and last but not least, 3D Printing. We recently added a new partner to the firm, a New York transplant surgeon, to spearhead our 3D Bioprinting investments. The research is mindboggling from a business perspective. ,,,,,,,,,Market Size.
