Researchers ‘trick’stem cells into becoming bone
LabOnline, Other, 09/06/2021
An international research team led by Monash University has found a way to alter the shape and nucleus of individual stem cells, which could speed up recovery following bone replacements. Their findings have been published in Advanced Science. The research collaboration, involving Monash University, the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication, CSIRO, the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne, developed micropillar arrays using UV nanoimprint lithography that essentially trick’ the cells into becoming bone.
