New technique uses ultrasound to align living cells in 3D bioprinted tissues

One of the ways of making bioengineered tissues is to embed living cells within 3D printed structures. But one challenge has been organizing the cells in 3D bioprinted gels, so that the engineered tissue more closely mimics natural tissues. via 3ders.org, http://www.3ders.org/articles/20190411-new-technique-uses-ultrasound-to-align-living-cells-in-3d-bioprinted-tissues.html
