Waisman scientists model human disease in stem cells using induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells

Waisman scientists model human disease in stem cells using induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells | Stem Cells & Tissue Engineering | Scoop.it
Jacob Blumenthal's insight:

Scientists at the Waisman center at UW-Madison are growing iPS cells to model pathologies related to neurology, ear, and  retina. This article describes the work and interest of each scientist in the center.

Printable 'bionic' ear melds electronics and biology
Eureka!
Jacob Blumenthal's insight:

Princeton researchers primary purpose was to explore an efficient and versatile means to merge electronics with tissue. The scientists used 3D printing of cells and nanoparticles followed by cell culture to combine a small coil antenna with cartilage, creating what they term a bionic ear.

I am not so sure how functional is that ear and how the coil will be connected to the brain, but its another step in the production of artificial functional organs or evan enhanced ones.

Many of the technologies first fictionalized in Star Trek are now a reality. Using x-rays, scans, and a mixture of cells, scientists can actually print human tissue and organs.
