Biomedical Engineering Expert & Regenerative Medicine

Scientific ResearchScientists in the United States announce the development of a new bioengineering technique, which allows them to create strings of living cells and nanoscale filaments. These structures can then be used to bridge gaps at a macroscopic scale, which means that they could possibly underlie a new generation of advanced therapies against heart diseases and spinal cord injuries. Additionally, the group believes, the constructs could also help create better and more efficient artificial muscles. The research team behind the achievement is based at the Northwestern University in Illinois, Chemistry World reports.

“In terms of regenerative medicine, we still need to find ways to better control how stem cells develop into tissue. And for applications such as heart surgery, we need to find ways to produce thick muscle tissue and integrate it smoothly with the rest of the heart,” says Duke University cardiac tissue engineering expert witness Nenad Bursac.
