Amazing!! Scientists can now grow a human heart outside of a human body from stem cells

Stem cell research will never cease to amaze mankind as it has infinite possibilities of an evolutionary science that may well reach the pinnacle of creation. Scientists can now grow a human heart.In what could be one of the most important milestones of human science, researchers at Harvard Stem Cell Institute are endeavoring to carry forward last year’s amazing experiment of creation of the foundation of a mini human heart from stem cell tissue towards developing a mature human heart.

1 Scientists Achieved a Milestone last year!

In July 2015, a path breaking collaboration between researchers from Berkeley California and scientists from the Gladstone Institute had developed a template model of a beating human heart optimized from stem cell tissue. Researchers claimed that the template could well pave the way for live and beating cardiac tissue to be constructed from stem cells, benefitting the future of heart development.

Led by stem cell biologist Dr. Bruce Conklin and his team of researchers, the creation of a tiny beating heart took place from stem cells at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease in San Francisco. The experiment involved cells from skin tissue to grow in a Petri dish lined with a chemical layers with altered properties through oxygen plasma etching. Confused??? Then perhaps this simple explanation will more than educate you. Read on.

2 Stem Cells Reprogrammed Into Behaving Like Heart Tissue

What the scientists did was that they created a chemically altered condition conducive to cardiovascular construction in a small experimental vessel. When they placed the stem cells in to the vessel, the chemically treated atmosphere educated stem cells and reprogrammed them to restructure themselves into micron levels of a heart. The most amazing result of the experiment was a micro chamber or a teeny weenie immature human beating heart!!!

We have seen such ideology in movies, remember The Amazing Spider man? Well this is for real! The experiment proved with continued research that stem cells can be prodded and prompted to adopt the properties of any tissue of the human body to take on its particular form. That is why stem cell research is infinitely important for the future of medicine where deteriorated organs can well be regenerated and saved.
