Scientists said Wednesday they had grown rudimentary human kidney tissue from stem cells, a key step towards the Holy Grail of fully-functional, lab-made transplant organs. The researchers from Australia and the Netherlands grew their "kidney-like structure" from induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells -- adult cells reprogrammed into a neutral state from which they can be coaxed to develop into ...

A tiny human kidney has been grown in a dish by Australian scientists using stem cells, a lead researcher said on Thursday. The scientists — from Melbourne’s Murdoch Children’s Research Institute — have reprogrammed stem cells and turned them into the most developed human kidney ever created in a laboratory. The breakthrough is being seen […]
