Artificial Blood On An Industrial Scale

Kevin Mayer | GEN | April 14, 2014

It may sound like science fiction or an attempt to inject novelty into the overworked vampire genre, but the production of artificial blood, on a scale that would rival existing transfusion sources, is being countenanced by researchers eager to exploit stem cell technology.

Open Source 3-D Bioprinting Brings Houston Team One Step Closer to Growing Capillaries

Press Release | Rice University | July 10, 2017

In their work toward 3-D printing transplantable tissues and organs, bioengineers and scientists from Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine have demonstrated a key step on the path to generate implantable tissues with functioning capillaries. In a paper published online in the journal Biomaterials Science, a team from the laboratories of Rice bioengineer Jordan Miller and Baylor College of Medicine biophysicist Mary Dickinson showed how to use a combination of human endothelial cells and mesenchymal stem cells to initiate a process called tubulogenesis that is crucial to the formation of blood-transporting capillaries...
