Human muscle that contracts is made in laboratory

Scientists have successfully grown a human skeletal muscle that contracts and responds similarly to natural body tissue to electrical pulses. The laboratory development is designed to help researchers study new drugs.

New technology for making living tissue

A new method for constructing large tissues from living components of three-dimensional micro-tissues has been developed. Researchers hope that the process can one day building entire organs.

Model of human heart with cardiovascular disease made

Using organ-on-a-chip technology, researchers have developed a model of functioning human heart tissue with an inherited cardiovascular disease.

Can humans achieve vertebrate tissue regeneration?

Some animals can regenerate tissues after severe organ loss or amputation while others, such as humans, cannot. The reasons have long puzzled scientists. Researchers have some new ideas that might one day lead to human tissue regeneration.

3D printing gets closer to printing living human tissue

A new bioprinting method has created intricately patterned 3-D tissue constructs with multiple types of cells and tiny blood vessels. Researchers are hopeful that printing living tissue will soon be possible.

Human stem cells used to create lung tissue

Researchers have created functioning human lung cells from stem cells. This is the first time this process has been undertaken successfully.

New technique to create transparent brains

Researchers have developed a solution that turns tissues transparent. It is hoped that the technique will be used to view neuronal circuits in the human brain, as part of the examination of conditions like Alzheimer's disease.

U.S. government to privatize chicken, turkey carcass inspections

Washington - A pilot program by the United States Department of Agriculture privatizing inspection of poultry products is being allowed to proceed, even though records show scabs, feathers, bile, sores and digestive tract tissue often remain in poultry carcasses.
