Scientists have shown that they can drive cardiac stem cells to become heart muscle cells using a silicon chip etched with grooves. The team from Imperial College London have developed a silicon chip with tiny grooves, which are 0.01 millimetres wide and only 0.0003 millimetres deep. They showed that the grooves stimulated a biochemical response… View Article
