Synthetic extracellular matrices with tailored adhesiveness and degradability support lumen formation during angiogenic sprouting

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical

Current tissue engineering strategies lack materials that promote angiogenesis. Here the authors develop a microfluidic in vitro model in which chemokine-guided endothelial cell sprouting into a tunable hydrogel is followed by the formation of perfusable lumens to determine the material properties that regulate angiogenesis.
