Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) provide a potentially unlimited cell source for producing autologous tissue-engineered vascular grafts (TEVGs), which currently suffer from low mechanical strength. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Luo et al. (2020) describe optimized culture media and a mechanical stretching regimen to produce hiPSC-derived TEVGs with mechanical behavior similar to that of natural vessels.
