Lab-grown Corneal Cells Could Restore Vision In Elderly-3

Lab-grown corneal cells could restore vision in elderly

Australian researchers have come up with an innovative new technique of growing corneal cells in the laboratory. The artificially-grown cells can be implanted directly into an eye, as a way of restoring lost or impaired vision in patients with corneal damage. The breakthrough, according to the scientists, could benefit the lives of over 10 million…


New Technology Allows Heart Cells To Stick Like Velcro-2

New technology allows heart cells to snap together like Velcro, for easier cardiac repair

Growing fully-functioning specialized tissues, in the laboratory, is an ongoing project, in biomedical engineering, that promises easier and more efficient organ transplantation and repair. In the past, scientists have built contracting heart tissues as well as skeletal muscle tissues, from human stem cells. Recently, a team of researchers, at the University of Toronto, has developed…
