Mammals can regenerate the very tips of their fingers and toes after amputation, and now new research shows how stem cells in the nail play a role in that process.

Scientists have finally succeeded in using cloning to create human embryonic stem cells, a step toward developing replacement tissue to treat diseases but one that might also hasten the day when it will be possible to create cloned babies.

Bone replacements that are needed due to trauma or disease like osteoarthritis, can now be grown in a patient-specific way from pluripotent skin stem cells.

Scientists at Princeton University in the US used off-the-shelf printing tools to create a functional ear that can ‘hear’ radio frequencies beyond the range of normal human capability.

A tiny implant made from coral could help repair knee joints crippled by osteo-arthritis. The implant helps to stimulate the growth of new cartilage from stem cells — the body’s own immature cells that can turn into any type of tissue.

A team of researchers have developed a technique to produce three-dimensional cultures of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells called embryoid bodies, amenable to live cell imaging and to electrical activity measurement.
