SOUTHAMPTON (UK), October 2021 – Researchers at the University of Southampton have invented a new way to generate human cartilage tissue from stem cells. The technique could pave the way for the development of a much-needed new treatment for people with cartilage damage.
WEST LAFAYETTE, IN (US), October 2021 – Most strokes happen when an artery in the brain becomes blocked. Blood flow to the neural tissue stops and those tissues typically die. Because of the locations of the major arteries in the brain, many strokes affect motor function.
