3-D Printed Scaffold (image) Rice University Share Print E-Mail Caption Rice University researchers created a 3-D printed scaffold that mimics the environment of bone cancer cells. They combined experiments with computational modeling to find that the structure of a scaffold, natural or not, has a very real effect on how cells express signaling proteins that help cancer grow.
