Scientists take tissue-engineering approach to improve healing related to skeletal system
"Take a knee." "On bended knee." A "knee-slapper." "The bees knees." The knee certainly carries a lot of weight in the English language, just as it does in the body. As the largest and one of the most complicated joints, the knee is also one of the most easily injured. Anatomically, its no wonder – the knee connects the two longest levers in the body: the thigh and lower leg.

Recreating liver tumors as organoids for faster, more accurate drug screening
To more accurately mimic these features, researchers have developed models of liver tumors called patient-derived xenografts (PDX). Although these models provide a truer picture of how effective potential cancer drugs would be in humans, they are also expensive and time-consuming to create
