Balls of Cells
Spheres made of cells are the precursors to many of our mature tissues. They are also useful structures for research on stem cells, tissue engineering, and cancer biology. Therefore, it is important to be able to easily and efficiently create cell-based spheres. I will describe our efforts in this field, with a focus on a project to create hollow spheres for engineering of the ocular lens.
