Stacy Ramcharan, ChE PhD Student, constructs a 3D Cell Scaffold in the North Campus Research Complex on North Campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI on August 1, 2017. The scaffolds are constructed on glass slides as polymer is deposited one thread at a time while inducing varying voltages through it in order to facilitate the process.
