Scientists In Japan Create Complex Skin Tissue In Laboratory

April 1, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Scientists from Japan’s RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology and partners from Tokyo University of Science and other Japanese institutions have succeeded in growing complex skin tissue in the laboratory. Also, they were able to implant these 3-D tissues into living mice, with the tissues properly connecting with other organ systems, including nerves and muscle fibers. According to the report published in Science Advances journal, these achievements make it possible to create skin transplants for burn and other people who need new skin. Researchers used chemicals to transform cells from mouse gums into stem-cell-like iPS cells.
