Scientists at the University of Manchester are currently working on a method to use inkjet nozzles to spray human cells. The cells would be the harvested from the patient and then grown to prevent rejection. The cells then can be sprayed in a way to grow to the desired shape and speed healing.

So far the scientists have used this method to spray and grow human fibroblasts and osteoblasts and bovine chondrocytes.
