4 February 2013 Last updated at 20:05 ET A 3D printing technique that produces clusters of stem cells could speed up progress towards creating artificial organs, Edinburgh scientists have claimed. In the more immediate future it could be used to generate biopsy-like tissue samples for drug testing. The technique relies on an adjustable “microvalve” to build up layers of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs).
Feb. 1, 2013 Biologists at Tufts University School of Arts and Sciences have discovered a bioelectric signal that can identify cells that are likely to develop into tumors
31 January 2013 Last updated at 22:57 ET Scientists say they have, for the first time, worked out the pattern of spread of hepatitis C, showing early diagnosis is key to preventing epidemics. A study in injecting drug users in Greece indicated that each infected person spread the disease to 20 others – 10 of these in the first two years
Jan. 31, 2013 A new study led by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, represents a major advance in the understanding of the molecular mechanisms behind aging while providing new hope for the development of targeted treatments for age-related degenerative diseases. Older and fitter
