We are investigating how to bio-print and computationally model vascular flow of three-dimensional human tissue structures, which has applications to rapid drug discovery, personalized medicine, and therapeutic countermeasures. While providing insight into the cancer metastatic process, this research will also support novel applications for three-dimensional bio-printing.
