Bioprinted tissues with entangled vascular networks for air and blood are a major step toward 3D printing of replacement organs. Bioengineers from University of Washington and Rice University teamed to create the 3D bioprinted vascular networks and tested them in mice.
Synthetic peptide can inhibit toxicity, aggregation of protein in Alzheimer’s disease, researchers show
Researchers led by UW Department of Bioengineering Professor Valerie Daggett have developed synthetic peptides that can target and inhibit the small, toxic protein aggregates that are thought to trigger Alzheimer’s disease. The team reports their achievement in a paper published the week of April 15 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
