Eucomis autumnalis is more than just a plant - it could play a role in biomedical engineering.
Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine is based on three key requirements working together: signals from body tissues and organs, responding stem cells, and scaffolds.
Large scar after surgery on the abdomen young woman.
When kids get injured their skin heals fast, but usually with nasty-looking scars. Now scientists studying the genes of old mice have figured out how they regenerate skin and block scars.
Stem cells show potential for treating injuries, but some lab trials show they could be harmful too.
Injecting stem cells to repair damaged tissue isn’t a new concept, but this method appears safer than others.
We have developed a new stem cell technique capable of regenerating any human tissue damaged by injury, disease or ageing.
The genetic “recipe” for lizard tail regeneration has been uncovered, paving the way for the development of human tissue…
Those days need not remain in photographs.
It is a sad fact that old age brings diseases. Many may not be life-threatening, but they make life less fun. One such condition is sarcopenia, which causes the loss of muscle mass and strength, and it…
A material that is liquid at room temperature but gel once it is injected into the body may help repair damaged bones in…
