medicineSynthetic DNA coverts stem cells to heart muscle is potential tissue regeneration treatment

No Comments
A newly discovered DNA-targeting molecule could inspire the first tissue regeneration therapies. The synthetic molecule can cause stem cells to transform into heart muscle cells. The scientists responsible for the new molecule believe their breakthrough could be used to turn …

3d printingOxford 3D bioprinting scaling to industrial scale tissue printing and organ printing

No Comments
Scientists at the University of Oxford have developed a new method to 3D-print laboratory-grown cells to form living structures. The approach could revolutionize regenerative medicine, enabling the production of complex tissues and cartilage that would potentially support, repair or augment …

materials‘Origami organs’ can potentially regenerate tissues

No Comments
Northwestern Medicine scientists and engineers have invented a range of bioactive “tissue papers” made of materials derived from organs that are thin and flexible enough to even fold into an origami bird. The new biomaterials can potentially be used to …
