Summer Science Exhibition 2016: Giving stem cells a good (nano)kicking

source: The Royal Society    2016年6月9日
A little kick that could get stem cell therapies moving.
Stem cells – which can turn into many different types of specialised cells – have the potential to revolutionise the treatment of many diseases and injuries. However, persuading stem cells to specialise into the tissue type we desire is a real challenge. Our exhibit reveals a new technique that is helping to overcome this problem; using nanoscale vibrations to control cell behaviour.
Our free, week-long festival (Monday 4 July - Sunday 10 July) features 22 curated exhibits and a series of inspiring talks and activities for all ages.
