Miniature Spinal Cords Grown In The Lab | IFLScience

Miniature Spinal Cords Grown In The Lab | IFLScience | metrobodilypassages | Scoop.it
Scientists from the Dresden University of Technology have made a giant stride in the field of regenerative medicine, having successfully grown spinal cord-like tissue in the lab from embryonic stem cells. Although mouse cells were used, the study raises the possibility that one day, with further development, this technique could be used to help patients with spinal cord injuries. The work has been published in Stem Cell Reports.
