3D Printed Material Mimics Biological Tissue
A flower-shaped printed droplet network spontaneously folded to form a hollow sphere. Researchers at the University of Oxford made the find.

“We aren't trying to make materials that faithfully resemble tissues but rather structures that can carry out the functions of tissues," said Professor Hagan Bayley of Oxford University's Department of Chemistry, who led the research. 'We’ve shown that it is possible to create networks of tens of thousands connected droplets. The droplets can be printed with protein pores to form pathways through the network that mimic nerves and are able to transmit electrical signals from one side of a network to the other.”
