Stem cell boost19th September 2007
A method of routinely growing stem cells in conditions similar to the human body has been developed by scientists at Durham University.
The technology allows the cells to be grown on a small polystyrene scaffold about the size of a 10p piece, rather than on the flat surface of a Petri dish, and it is hoped the process will increase the success rate of drug tests.
The design has been patented by the university and its company ReInnervate. The study of the effectiveness of the technology appeared in the Journal of Anatomy.
