Dr. Hashimoto and Prof. Yokokawa of collaboration research group have published recent progress in the journal of Integrative Biology. This is the first manuscript which Miura-team in CREST ‘Biodynamics’ published. In this progress, we established a fundamental methodology, in which tissue or reconstructed tissue can be cultured for longer time period by perfusion through the connected vasculature.
