Researchers have discovered clues to the development of the head at the cellular level, which could point scientists to a better understanding of how organs and birth defects form in humans.
Known for successfully transplanting a bioengineered stem cell-based trachea, surgeon Paolo Macchiarini plans to use his technique to recreate more complex tissue. He has recently made attempts to regenerate brain tissue in rats and mice.
Researchers have developed a flexible neural fiber implant that can deliver both optical impulses for optogenetic stimulation and electrical stimulation. The new implant could help to restore function in those with spinal cord injury.
According to a new study, a tissue-engineered colon derived from human stem cells can develop nerves required to function effectively.
Every year, millions of people contend with lower back and neck discomfort. With intent to ease their pain, Cornell University...
Researchers have developed a new implantable optogenetics device which they believe could expand the scope of this new field of research.
