Being Able to Build Human Blood Vessels as Organoids from Stem Cells is a Game Changer

Being Able to Build Human Blood Vessels as Organoids from Stem Cells is a Game Changer

The more that is learned about how microfluidic processes control or contribute to cellular change, the sooner science will be able to design a cost-effective medical treatment based on that information. New research on microtubules and blood-vessel organoids augments this.

Recent findings by a team of engineering and medical scientists at Stanford University shed new light on how cell components move around and self-renew. Part of the study’s focus was on the link between microtubules and self-organization. (more…)
