Advances in production of retinal cells for treating blindness

Researchers discovered a way to refine the production of retinal cells from embryonic stem cells for treating blindness in the elderly. Using the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing, they have also managed to modify the cells so that they can hide from the immune system to prevent rejection

Suction forces enable precise bioprinting

Aspiration-assisted technique could be used in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and the creation of “organs-on-a-chip” for drug testing and disease modelling
