The blueprint for everything.
Medical techniques for looking inside our bodies have come a long way, but in the future it looks like doctors may be able to see absolutely everything going on under our skin.
Scientists at the University of Oxford have developed a new method to 3D-print laboratory- grown cells to form living structures.
Tissue “seeds” made up of three cell types and patterned onto a scaffold develop into complex structures with some organ function, researchers show.
A new tissue-clearing technique reveals blood vessel networks and collagen scaffolds of dog and human cardiac tissue.
A new energy system inside living plants.
In HBO’s TV show ‘Westworld,’ humanoid robots are 3D printed through means not totally explained by the show. While that may sound unrealistic, the technology to print human body parts already exists…
Researchers are using the tissue, synthesized with human pluripotent stem cells and implanted into mice, to study a rare form of Hirschprung’s disease.
MIT researchers have adapted a technique known as expansion microscopy to visualize RNA molecules at high resolution in tissue samples. They have also made the technique easier to use, with off-the-shelf components.
A UCSF-led team has developed a technique to build tiny models of human tissues, called organoids, more precisely than ever before using a process that turns human cells into a biological equivalent of LEGO bricks. These mini-tissues in a dish can be used to study how particular structural features of tissue affect normal growth or go awry in cancer. They could be used for therapeutic drug screening and to help teach researchers how to grow whole human organs.
