Abstract

Microfabricated smart biomaterials can provide structural support and spatial control for tissue assembly resulting in tissue models or implantable tissues with realistic physiological functions. These tissues can be complemented with the built-in capacity for vascular perfusion and rapid assembly. In this seminar, I will discuss the recent breakthroughs we have made in scaffold fabrication and how it resulted in a number of technologies, specifically AngioChip, and AngioTube 96-well plate for drug screening and tissue repair applications. Building on this progress, I will also discuss the path forward. Successful development of novel tissue assembly strategies will expand our toolbox to propel drug discoveries and clinical therapy towards greater precision, reduced translational costs, and improved efficacy.
