German Stem Cell Scientists Develop 3-D “Mini-retinas” –New Hope for Restoring Sight in Patients with Retinal Degeneration Caused by Diabetes and Inherited Disorders.

Medical breakthroughs using stem cells are aimed at all parts of the body bones, kidneys, joints, spines--and now, sight. A German study in March in Stem Cell Reports, reports that scientists have created an efficient way of developing 3D retina organoids leverage the self-organizing properties of stem cells to create diverse multi-cellular tissue proxies. 3-D Mini-retinas protocol The…
