Growing heart muscle cells: 2 breakthroughs you need to know

Host animal hearts and 3-D printed scaffolds—both appear to be showing promise when it comes to growing heart tissue to restore damaged hearts. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University recently reported that they’ve had success using host animal hearts to grow mature and viable heart muscle cells from stem cells. Meanwhile, a 1-micron-resolution scaffold made with a 3-D printer
