In a step toward one of stem cell science’s chief goals, UW-Madison researchers have grown functional human artery cells that helped lab mice survive heart attacks.
“This work provides valuable proof that we can eventually get a reliable source for functional arterial endothelial cells and make arteries that perform and behave like the real thing,” Thomson said in a statement. Read about it Here and Here.
