Arafat Fasuyi

Arafat Fasuyi will test her hypothesis that generating hardware and bioinks for a 3D bioprinting (SLATE) that can achieve higher resolution printing of microvasculature will enable the Stevens Lab to produce more functional artificial liver tissues. In her project, Arafat will aim to improve 3D printed tissue resolution and achieve vessel diameters on the order of venules/arterioles and create functional artificial liver tissues by integrating hepatocyte organoids into biocompatible hydrogel.
