Scientists print first 3D heart using patient's biological materials

In a major medical breakthrough, Tel Aviv University researchers have "printed" the world's first 3D heart. Engineered heart completely matches the immunological, cellular, biochemical and anatomical properties of the patient.

Artificial Bone Marrow Supports Blood Stem Cells

Scientists in Basel, Switzerland, have created an artificial tissue that mimics some of the biological properties of natural bone marrow niches and can support stem and progenitor cell replication over several days.

Scientists Regrow Brain Tissue That Was Damaged by a Stroke

Researchers have just made a breakthrough discovery in how we can possibly treat stroke patients in the future.

Robots grow mini-organs from human stem cells

A robotic system has been developed to automate the production of human mini-organs derived from stem cells. This will expand the use of mini-organs in basic research and drug discovery.

Chinese scientists used 3D printing to grow new ears for 5 children

Each scaffold was made by 3D printing a replica of each patient’s ear using a Z Corporation Spectrum Z510 3D printer. The scaffolds were then populated with living cells from each patient.

Nanoengineers 3-D print biomimetic blood vessel networks

Nanoengineers have 3-D printed a lifelike, functional blood vessel network that could pave the way toward artificial organs and regenerative therapies.

Scientists have created mice with hyper-long telomeres without altering the genes

A research team has succeeded in creating mice in the laboratory with hyper-long telomeres and with reduced molecular ageing, avoiding the use of genetic manipulation.

Scientists Have Created Functional Sperm From Stem Cells

  • 26 Feb 2016

Scientists from China have made history by taking a cell that's not a sperm cell and then used it to create a live animal. A similar technique could be used one day to treat infertility in humans.
