When someone has a deadly disease or sustains a life-threatening injury, a transplant or graft of new tissue may be the best or only treatment option. Transplanted organs, skin grafts and other parts need blood vessels to bring oxygen-rich blood their way, but for tissue engineers and regenerative medicine experts, making a functional blood vessel network within large tissues in the laboratory has long been a major challenge.
