Biofabrication in microfluidic platforms

Summary: The BioChip Collaborative team has pioneered the programmable assembly of biomaterials within microfluidics as spatially controlled platforms for studying interactions between biomolecules, small signaling molecules, cells and cell colonies, and biofilms. Biofabricated hydrogels are formed by electrodeposition at electrodes or a flow interfaces, using combinations of chemistry, electrochemistry, and materials science.
