World's first kidney grown from stem cells

2 posts in this topic

Scientists in Australia have grown the world's first kidney from stem cells - a tiny organ which could eventually help to reduce the wait for transplants.

The breakthrough, published in the journal Nature Cell Biology, followed years of research and involved the transformation of human skin cells into an organoid - a functioning "mini-kidney" with a width of only a few millimetres.
