With new nanotechnology developed by a Northwestern research team, blood vessels could be created to heal tears or blockage with a simple injection.
The team of doctors and students have discovered a way to grow blood vessels through the injection of nanofibers and proteins. The nanotechnology works by "self-assembly," meaning the liquid becomes a gel-like solid on its own.
