Patient cancer cells reliably grow on new 3D scaffold, showing promise for precision medicine
While previous structures guessed at the environment that cells would want, the new design lets the cells build to their own specifications.
Findings in mice show pill for breast cancer diagnosis may outperform mammograms
A new kind of imaging could distinguish aggressive tumors from benign, preventing unnecessary breast cancer treatments.
Microscale 3D printing for medicine
New “jet writing” technique can make detailed 3D structures with clinically relevant materials for future implants and cancer studies.
Bionic heart tissue: U-Michigan part of $20M center
Scar tissue left over from heart attacks creates dead zones that don’t beat. Bioengineered patches could fix that.
