Researchers at the University of Oxford have developed networks of water droplets that can act like biological tissue cells. The researchers created the networks using a three-dimensional printer, according to the study published in the journal Science. The networks can support up to 35,000 droplets and have the potential to be a scaffold for growing synthetic tissues or a way to model organ functions, a researcher said.
