Altering stem cell perception of tissue stiffness may help treat musculoskeletal disorders
from University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine via ScienceDaily
A new biomaterial can be used to study how and when stem cells sense the mechanics of their surrounding environment. With further development, this biomaterial could be used to control when immature stem cells differentiate into more specialized cells for regenerative and tissue-engineering-based therapies.
