The research team has developed a fast and versatile method for 3D printing small, flexible tubes from a type of material commonly used in biomedicine. These tiny structures, which can mimic the characteristics of body parts like the ear’s cochlea or a kidney’s filter system, can be made quickly and accurately for use in ‘organ-on-a-chip’ technologies, potentially revolutionizing how we study and develop treatments for various health conditions.
