Integrated circuit assembly finds second use as tissue scaffolding

07/19/2013 | Medical News Today

Automated assembly applied to building integrated circuits has been used to build 3D scaffolds on which tissues can be grown, according to this article. The layer-by-layer method pioneered at the Draper Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is normally used for mobile phones. But researchers have found it ideal for building structures that can encourage growth of tissues in patients who have suffered serious damage to organs.
