Singapore researchers claim key advance toward tissue implants

08/20/2013 | BioSpectrum Asia

A key step toward engineered organ replacements has been marked by researchers at Singapore's Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, who have assembled organ cells and their micro-environments by embedding them in hydrogels, according to this article. The advance, which the researchers say involves a simple process, would provide for the quick vascularization of implanted tissue through use of the hydrogel, which also contains a supply of nutrients for the embedded cells.
