Biomimetic Skeletal Muscle Tissue Model Public

open in viewer

In vitro tissue modeling of skeletal muscle has a potential role in understanding muscle tissue physiology. Current systems contain limitations including the presence of extracellular matrix and diffusion limitations. Our team developed a system that allows for sterile 3D tissue development, mimics in vivo attachment points, has a scaffold-less construction, and can mechanically stimulate developing muscle tissue in vitro. We believe this in vitro tissue model will not only allow a better understanding of developing muscle tissue, but can also be used as a screening modality for evaluation of future therapeutic treatments for muscle diseases and volumetric muscle loss.
