Geekwire, New York Post, IFLScience among outlets to cover 'the new secret weapon' in fighting disease

Robots can now create human mini-organs from stem cells.

The robotic system could accelerate the production and use of organ tissues that don’t have to be cut out of an actual human but are nevertheless suitable for research and drug discovery. The system is described in a study published online in the journal Cell Stem Cell.

“This is a new ‘secret weapon’ in our fight against disease,” Benjamin Freedman, a medical researcher at the UW Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine and the Kidney Research Institute, said in a news release.
