Abstract

We propose a method to assemble fiber-shaped tissues into a 3D network. In the method, we connected fiber-shaped tissues using micro pillar devices anchoring both ends of the tissues. The fibershaped tissues were assembled into heterogeneous and 3D network. We believe that this method will be useful for the analysis of cellular morphology and functions in a 3D network of tissues.
