Η έρευνα θα μπορούσε να οδηγήσει τελικά σε νέες πηγές οργάνων για μεταμόσχευση, όμως πρέπει να ξεπεραστούν ηθικές και τεχνικές εμπλοκές.
Researchers have used the simplest approach yet to produce artificial beta cells from human kidney cells. Like their natural model, the artificial cells act as both sugar sensors and insulin producers._ ETH Zurich
Tufts University researchers have discovered a new technique for generating rapidly-differentiating human neural stem cells for use in a variety of tissue engineering applications, including a three-dimensional model of the human brain, according to a paper published today in Stem Cell Reports.
