    Scientists at Rutgers and Stanford universities ....

    ...have created a new technology that could someday help treat Parkinson's disease and other devastating brain-related conditions that affect millions of people.

    The technology -- a major innovation -- involves converting adult tissue-derived stem cells into human neurons on 3-D "scaffolds," or tiny islands, of fibers, said Prabhas V. Moghe, a distinguished professor in the departments of Biomedical Engineering and Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at Rutgers University.

    And that may eventually help people suffering from Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's disease, Alzheimer's disease, spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries, and concussions, he said.

    This is AWESOME! I believe 3D printing technology is the ticket to SCI cure, it is far superior to anything else that has come along thus far. Glad to see they're making such rapid progress with it.

    They say human trials are 10-20 years away


      Thats not too bad 10 to 20 years in the whole realm of things when it comes to neurological research.

      respond to not only the
      challenges you're dealt but
      the challenges you seek...If
      you have no goals, no
      mountains to climb, your
      soul dies".~Liz Fordred
