I find it astonishing how far we have progressed in medicine recently. I just read this story from Harvard Medical School about how they are able to use stem cells to grow muscle tissue. They have just started testing this in petri dishes with both “mouse and human cells.” As this research progresses it could help so many people with muscle disorders like;”muscular dystrophy” and “sarcopenia (degenrative muscule loss)“. I know a few people here in Minnesota and there are many around the world that could benefit from this research.
Could you imagine what Leonardo di Vinci would say about this, after all he was one of the great grandfathers of modern medicine. His sketches on the human anatomy helped to pave the way for these advancment 500 years ago. He bet he would have never been able to see the advancments we have made thanks inpart to these sketches.
The funny thing is I found this article through wordpress from juniperj. What do you think of this new research comeing out?
