In this paper, we review our recent work on the potential of stereolithography (SL) for different biomedical applications including tissue engineering, neovessel formation, investigating cell-cell and cell matrix interactions, and development of cellular systems. Also, we show that SL technology can be combined with dielectrophoresis (DEP) to create scaffolds with micro-scale organization, a hallmark of in vivo tissues.
