Researchers develop ‘injectable’ blood vessels.

Rice University scientists have developed a hydrogel that can be injected into an internal wound and help it heal while slowly degrading as it is replaced by natural tissue and blood vessels.  Hydrogels are used as a scaffold upon which cells can build tissue. The new hydrogel overcomes a host of issues that have kept them from reaching their potential to treat injuries and forming … Continue reading Researchers develop ‘injectable’ blood vessels.
