Engineered Tissue On A String
Long, thin fibrous materials would be attractive for tissue engineering if there were a good way to incorporate cells and extracellular matrix proteins into the fibers. Shoji Takeuchi and coworkers at the University of Tokyo have now made that wish come true (Nat. Mater., DOI: 10.1038/nmat3606). The researchers took advantage of double-coaxial laminar flow in a microfluidic device to fabricate fibers with a . . .
