Human Bones Successfully Grown In The Lab
Scientists at Columbia University have successfully grown human bones from stem cells in a lab.
In a recent experiment, scientists at the Columbia University successfully grew human bones from stem cells in a lab. The team used digital images of an intact jaw bone to create a three-dimensional replica, called a scaffold. They then turned it into a living tissue by placing it in a similar-shaped chamber, adding human stem cells extracted from bone marrow. The chamber was fed with growth hormones, oxygen and nutrients to enable the bone to flourish.
