Long-term cryopreservation of functional engineered tissues (ETs) is a key enabling technology for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. However, a limited understanding of tissue-level biophysical phenomena during freeze/thaw (F/T) and their effects on cells and ECM microstructure poses significant challenges for i) preserving tissue functionality, and ii) controlling highly tissue-type dependent cryopreservation outcomes.
