Edinburgh, U.K. - Scientific researchers have grown a completely functional organ from laboratory-developed cells in a living animal for the very first time. Scientists transplanted a fully functional thymus -- an important organ that supplies the body with immunity cells. Left: Specialised thymus cells were developed from an entirely distinct cell type utilizing a laboratory technique called re-programming. Right: The...
Producing stem cells has always been a convoluted process. Thatâ€™s why the discovery of key transcriptional networks are helping to pave the way for new culturing methods and further advancements in the field of cell therapy (see also,Pluripotent Stem Cells â€“ What we know today) .
