A major challenge in tissue engineering is the lack of proper vascularization of the fabricated tissue constructs. Microscale technologies, especially microfluidic systems, provide new opportunities to overcome the challenge of developing artificial micro-vasculatures. In this chapter, the application of microfluidic systems for generating vascularized… CONTINUE READING
