Using a novel 3D lung organoid model, new research published in Cell Stem Cell has shed light on the body's infection response to COVID-19. LungsOur lungs transfer ambient oxygen into the bloodstream while transferring out carbon dioxide. The airflow generated by our lungs also allows for speech as it passes through our vocal cords. Lung...

This is part one of a new weekly series focusing on recent advancements in the field of regenerative medicine. The field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM) is a large and rapidly growing field that has implications for the field of longevity. Broadly, the field of TERM is working...

Researchers from the Universities of Harvard and Tel Aviv have succeeded in linking up to 10 "organs-on-a-chip" via an analog of human vasculature. The invention allows for in vitro testing of drug toxicity and action, taking us one step closer to automated clinical trials and the development of personalized drugs. Chipping away at trial duration...

The ability to create synthetic organs has long been desired in medicine. If we could make synthetic organs for patients from their own cells, we could replace injured or damaged organs without risking the body rejecting the organ. This would have huge implications for the treatment of liver and kidney diseases, among others. For years,...

Today, we wish to highlight a new open access publication in which the researchers take a novel approach to the regeneration of the thymus, a small but vitally important organ that is key to our immune system. The thymus shrinks as we age The thymus is one of the most important organs in the body,...

Researchers at UCLA have managed to guide pluripotent stem cells into becoming adult T cells, the cells that patrol the body to kill cancer and other diseases and that are trained in our thymi. The study, published in Cell Stem Cell, was led by senior author Gay Crooks, M.D., a professor of pathology and laboratory...
