Meanwhile, the need is growing: According to the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration, more than 106,000 men, women and children are on the U.S. national transplant waiting list.

In a recent review article in Nature Biomedical Engineering, a University of Maryland bioengineering researcher and colleagues explain how advances in microfabrication, nanofabrication, materials science, and thermal-fluid engineering can improve how cells and tissues and organs are banked or even created.
