Stem Cells That Form Kidney Blood Vessels Identified

An exciting stem cell discovery from researchers at University of Virginia Medical School brings scientists one step closer to growing kidneys in the lab, complete with functioning vasculature. The UVA investigators not only identified the stem cells that produce blood vessels in the kidney, they also found that blood forms…

Research Breakthrough – Kidneys Grown in Lab in Scotland

Scottish researchers at the University of Edinburgh have managed to grow tiny kidneys measuring just 0.2 inches long. Their breakthrough represents a giant leap forward in the future treatment of kidney disease. The organs, created in the lab using stem cells from human amniotic fluid and animal fetal cells, are…
