Professor Kevin Healy and Colleagues Create Model of Early Human Heart Development from Stem Cells
by Materials Science and Engineering
July 16, 2015
Professor Kevin Healy, along with other Berkeley researchers and scientists at the Gladstone Institutes, developed a template for growing beating cardiac tissue from stem cells, creating a system that could serve as a model for early heart development and as a drug-screening tool to make pregnancies safer. Their research findings were published in Nature Communications.
