'Spider style' blood vessel building

2 posts in this topic

A way of building body parts similar to the way a spider spins its web has been demonstrated by researchers in the UK.

The team at University College London used a constant stream of cells mixed with a polymer to weave the new tissues.

They think the technique could produce better results than other ways of building body parts for transplant.

Interesting. I didn't know about building from a platform, either. I notice that they've only experimented on mice. Hopefully, it'll work in human trials, too.
