Mini-hearts grown to study disease

1 post in this topic

Thousands of miniature human hearts have been grown for medical research by scientists in Scotland.

The tiny balls of heart cells beat together in a dish every two seconds, and the tissue matches that of human heart muscle.

The researchers, at Abertay University, are using them to test potential drugs for an untreatable condition.
