Bonsai Cells
London - mentioned
A collaboration with Institute of Opthamology leads to some detailed exploration of the aesthetics of cells. Too what extent is it possible to control the pattern and shape of the cell colonies used in regenerative medicine?In vitro cultured stem cells can be carefully cultivated like bonsai. Their shape, network and colour contribute to efficiency and distinguish from pathologic ones. These "bonsai" cells are the first experiments of a series of possible patterns and cell shapes.
