Abstract

original image

Bio-sprays can directly form pre-organized cell-bearing structures for applications ranging from engineering functional tissues to the forming of cultures, most useful for modeling disease, to the discovery and development of drugs. Bio-electrosprays and aerodynamically assisted bio-jets, are leading approaches that have been demonstrated as having far-reaching ramifications for regenerative biology and medicine.
