A step forward in building functional human tissues

(Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard) Toward the ultimate goal of engineering human tissues and organs that can mimic native function for use in drug screening, disease modeling, and regenerative medicine, a Wyss Institute team led by Core Faculty member Jennifer Lewis, Sc.D., has made another foundational advance using three-dimensional (3-D) bioprinting.
