Researchers at Houston Methodist Research Lab are trying to print cells. They are using ancient Chinese wood blocks for there inspiration. They begin by pouring liquid filled cells grown from a petri dish onto mold- that looks like a Chinese wood block- the liquid  flows across the surface gets drawn in through strategically placed holes. When the mold is lifted the cells stay firm in the desired configuration- something that's never been done before.
