Abstract

Langer et al. use three-dimensional bioprinting to incorporate multiple cell types, including patient-derived cells, into scaffold-free in vitro tumor tissues. They show that cells within these tissues self-organize, secrete extracellular matrix factors, and respond to extrinsic signals and that multiple tumorigenic phenotypes can be assessed simultaneously.
