A team from the University of Cambridge has developed a novel method for generating human-size tubular tissue scaffolds, which have the potential to be used as a replacement for a range of diseased or damaged conduits in the human body. The scaffolds are made of biocompatible polymeric hydrogel materials, which support cell/organoid growth, whilst having sufficient mechanical strength for surgical implantation and offering the potential for luminal patterning. The scaffolds have been tested in-vivo. The team is seeking a commercial partner for collaboration and development of this technology.
