Felix Naef and Li Tang Win SNSF Sinergia Grants
Felix Naef and Li Tang, both Professors at the EPFL's Institute of Bioengineering (IBI), have been awarded major collaborative Sinergia grants by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).
Shape Guides the Growth of Organoids
Organoids are miniature lab-grown tissue structures that can mimic real organs. But guiding stem cells to grow an organoid of defined shape and size is difficult. Now, EPFL bioengineers have developed new methods for successfully guiding stem cells to grow into intestinal tissues with real-life 3D structure and function.
