Prof. Shaochen Chen Lab 3D-Prints Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening

A team led by Nano Professor Shaochen Chen, working with UC San Diego Medicine and Bioengineering Professor Shu Chien, has printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's structure and function for use in patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling. The new technology can be used to quicken drug development, and is a vast improvement over existing models that lack the complex structure of a real liver.
