Cellular development is highly influenced by the surrounding microenvironment. We propose user-reconfigurable microenvironments and bio-compatible scaffolds as an approach for understanding cellular development processes. We demonstrate a model platform for constructing versatile microenvironments by fabricating morphologically complex microstructures by two-photon polymerization (2PP) and then assembling these archetypal building blocks into various configurations using multiple, real-time configurable counterpropagating-beam (CB) traps. The demonstrated capacity for handling feature-rich microcomponents may be further developed into a eneralized microassembly platform.
