3D bioprinter for printing tissue with vascular perfusion

Written by Sonia Mannan

Professor Guohao Dai from Northeastern University (Boston, MA, USA) hopes to advance vascular disease therapy using his 3D bioprinter that he has used to print live tissue. Vascularization of engineered tissues is hugely important for their successful modeling or clinical grafting: if tissues do not perfuse they will not survive. Creating vasularized structures is currently a big challenge for the tissue engineering field, however, Associate Professor Guohao Dai from Northeastern University (Boston, MA, USA) has developed his own 3D bioprinter and accompanying software to create 3D printed live tissue with vascular perfusion for use in human disease modeling and drug...
