abstract

  • Cardiac tissue engineering using human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hPSC-CMs) has facilitated the creation of in vitro diagnostic platforms to study novel small molecules and cardiac disease at the tissue level. Yet, due to the immaturity of hPSC-CMs, there is a low fidelity between tissue-engineered cardiac tissues and adult cardiac tissues. To address this challenge, we have developed a platform that combines both physical and electrical cues to guide hPSC-CMs towards a more mature state in vitro.
