They found that those with chronic disease, even those conditions that don’t directly limit capacity for exercise, spent less time active. Around… Read More »

Stem cell researchers develop promising technique to generate new muscle cells in lab

To help patients with muscle disorders, scientists at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) have engineered a new stem cell line to study the conversion of stem cells into muscle. Findings appeared in Cell Reports. “We have also developed a more efficient strategy to make muscles from human stem cells. Scientists… Read More »
