MeTro Hydrogels


An international team led by the Wyss Institute recently used microfabrication techniques to design a new micropatterned hydrogel that shows great promise for tissue engineering — cardiac tissue in particular. It incorporates an elastic protein called tropoelastin, which is found in all elastic human tissues. The Wyss Institute’s Ali Khademhosseini discusses the research.
