Bioengineering Professor Rashid Bashir and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Professor Hyunjoon Kong have developed a bandage that stimulates and directs blood vessel growth on the surface of a wound. The bandage, called a microvascular stamp, contains living cells that deliver growth factors to damaged tissues in a defined pattern. After a week, the pattern of the stamp is written in blood vessels, the researchers report.
