3-D-printed, lifelike heart models could help train tomorrow’s surgeons

Full-size, realistic models of human organs could help surgeons train and practice before they cut into a patient. However, it’s been challenging to make inexpensive models of a size, complexity and material that simulates human organs. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering have developed a way to 3-D print a full-size model […]

Single-cell technique could provide ‘egg health’ indicators

Using the power of single-cell analysis, researchers at the Babraham Institute have assessed the effects of age on egg cells (oocytes) in mice, particularly looking to identify genomic and epigenetic factors that relate to reduced developmental competence. The knowledge uncovered by this research provides new insights into the mechanisms underlying egg quality and is relevant […]
