Scientists use stem cells to grow a BEATING human heart muscle for the first time ever

Scientists have grown the first human heart muscle that functions just like an adult's would.
Instead of the nine months it takes for a baby's heart to develop in the womb, they grew a functioning heart from stem cells in just four weeks.
Although researchers can grow many tissues, including the heart muscle, from stem cells, scientists at Columbia University were able to build one mature enough to be useful for medical research for the first time.
This development is a step forward in studying human physiology as it gives researchers a way to test treatments for conditions like heart... read more
