Rice university researchers develop sweet new way of 3D printing vascular networks 

Researchers from Rice University have developed a new method of using 3D printing to create artificial vascular networks from powdered sugar.  Replacing traditional production methods with Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printing, the team created sacrificial templates made from laser-sintered carbohydrate powders. These sugar-based constructs enable cell-laden hydrogels to be patterned with dendritic vessel networks, […]
