Iowa State researchers fabricate microfibers for single-cell studies, tissue engineering

(Iowa State University) Iowa State University researchers are using the science of microfluidics -- the study of fluids moving through channels just a millionth of a meter wide -- to design and fabricate microfiber scaffolds that support cell growth and tissue engineering. The researchers' findings were recently published in the journal Biomacromolecules.
