Team VESSEL, consists of 13 junior students aiming to create viable small diameter blood vessels by biochemically modifying silk fibroin, which is a promising biomaterial derived from silk. Our graft could be used for cardiac bypass surgeries to treat cardiovascular disease in patients who require replacement blood vessels.

Team VESSEL is starting a crowdfunding page through LaunchUMD to raise money for our project.
