Human lymphatic capillaries were engineered in a 3D hydrogel system to improve dermo-epidermal skin grafting. Skin Grafts Need Plumbing, Too To help heal a severe burn or wound, clinicians surgically transplant skin grafts, which consist of the epidermis (outer skin layer) and, often, part of the dermis (deeper layer, directly below the epidermis). The success of these grafts, however, is limited by the ability of blood vessels to form in the newly transplanted skin and deliver nutrients to the… Expand
