Fabrication of 3D Biomimetic Microfluidic Networks in Hydrogels.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

A laser-based hydrogel degradation technique is developed that allows for local control over hydrogel porosity, fabrication of 3D vascular-derived, biomimetic, hydrogel-embedded microfluidic networks, and generation of two intertwining, yet independent, microfluidic networks in a single construct.
