Potential Breakthrough in Creating Artificial Retina from Human Embryonic Stem Cells

June 6, 2010

Scientists from the University of California, Irvine have created an eight-layer early-stage retina from human embryonic stem cells, the first three-dimensional tissue structure to be made from stem cells.

To read more about this dramatic breakthrough, please see my writeup of their news release.

I also have a proof copy of the complete description of how this was accomplished as described in their article: “Three-dimensional early retinal progenitor 3D tissue constructs derived from human embryonic stem cells”, about to be published in the Journal of Neuroscience Methods. Please contact me for a pdf.
