Stem Cells

Complex organ models grown in the lab

Scientists at the University of Würzburg have successfully produced human tissues from stem cells. They have a complexity similar to that of normal tissue and are far superior to previous structures

Heart attack modeled with human stem cells

Toward the development of individual model of ischemic heart disease. A model of ischemic heart disease was developed using human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC). This model can provide a useful platform for developing effective drugs without sacrificing animals
