Tissues are built of cells integrated in an extracellular matrix of thin and elastic fibers. We can produce a recombinant silk protein that assemble into microfibers that support growth of integrated human cells into tissue-like constructs. We develop this with the aim to engineer functional tissue models for drug development.
