US 2013/0273337 A1: Method For Micropatterning A Substrate and A Patterned Substrate Formed Thereof (2019)
Abstract: A method of micropatterning a substrate is provided. The method comprises providing a template substrate having a patterned surface inked with a composition of interest; contacting the patterned surface with an intermediate substrate, thereby transferring the composition to the surface of the intermediate substrate; contacting the surface of the intermediate substrate comprising the composition with the substrate; and removing the intermediate substrate by dissolution using a solvent. A patterned substrate formed using the method, as well as a biosensor comprising the patterned substrate is also provided.

US 2013/0245784 A1: Method For Forming A Tissue Construct and Use Thereof (2018)
Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for forming a tissue construct having a composite structure. The method includes providing a biodegradable substrate, wherein the substrate is adapted to allow deposition or growth of a plurality of cells; providing a vascularized layer comprising a plurality of blood vessels therein; and adhering the vascularized layer to the substrate.
