Nanoscaffolding Goes Natural
Biomedical engineer Feng Zhao is making lab-grown tissues that are just like the real thing—because they are the real thing. Transcending synthetics, Feng Zhao's new nanoscaffolding created from fibroblast cells is set to revolutionize lab-grown tissues—and save lives.
Our cells aren't solitary. They exist in a vast, complex matrix that serves as the backbone for their duties. As cells proliferate, they use their surroundings to carry out our most basic biological functions, including growth and healing.
