Chemical engineers' paper featured in prestigious journal Biofabrication
Calendar Icon Jan 26, 2018 RSS
A paper co-authored by three University of Nebraska-Lincoln chemical and biomolecular engineers has been chosen to be featured in the Highlights 2017 collection in the prestigious journal Biofabrication.
The paper, "Three-dimensional tissues using human pluripotent stem cell spheroids as biofabrication building blocks," was written by graduate student Haishuang Lin, postdoctoral researcher Qiang Li and assistant professor Yuguo Lei.
The 10 articles chosen for the collection were cited for receving "the highest praise from international referees and a high number of downloads during 2017."
The Nebraska Engineering researchers measured the fusion rates of human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC) spheroids without and with differentiation toward cortical and midbrain dopaminergic neurons. They determined that fabricating an hPSC tissue is an appropriate method of biofabricating a different desired tissue.
The articles in the Highlights 2017 collection are available for free online through December 31, 2018.
