Indiana scientists are on the frontlines of research that could result in organs for transplant created by 3D bioprinting. 

Indiana University of School of Medicine research on organ transplant technology will get a boost from a $9 million, four-year agreement with the company Lung Biotechnology.

The Arconic Foundation hopes a recent donation to Ivy Tech Community College's Lafayette campus will help address the skills gap facing the manufacturing industry.

The college plans to use its $100,000 grant to start a new 3-D printing course and buy two 3-D printers. The school also plans to purchase laser cutters and engravers, all to be housed in a new lab space.

Ivy Tech Lafayette vice chancellor Todd Roswarski says he expects the program to simulate real-world experience.
