The Joung group focuses on using recent advances in extrusion-based bioprinting to generate a new type of bio-mimetic tumor model by capturing the architectural conditions within which cell migrations occur. We build vascularized models within a cell-laden extracellular matrix (ECM) that more closely resemble the appearance and behavior of natural vessels through a 4D printing approach. A step above 3D printing, 4D printing technology, where time is integrated as the fourth dimension, can be defined as self-transformation in the form or function of the printed objects upon exposure to predetermined external stimuli. 4D bioprinting provides a new way to gain high order control in creating tumor microenvironments that more closely mimic the in vivo architectural conditions.
