Breakthrough in blood vessel engineering

Growing functional blood vessel networks is no easy task. Previously, other groups have made networks that span millimeters in size. But now, a team has grown a self-assembling, functional network of blood vessels across centimeter scales, a size relevant for human use. With continued development and refinement, the microfluidic system could be used to grow blood vessels for human tissue and organ transplants.
