News Article: Embryonic Stem Cells Might Restore Sight To The Blind

| No Comments


EyeStemCell.pngWG found this Cleveland Leader article by Julie Kent on how embryonic stem cells may be used to restore sight to the blind.  Scientists at the University College of London's Institute of Ophthalmology & Moorfields Eye Hospital, using blind mice, were able to grow light senstitive retinal cells grown from stem cells to restore sight. 

Human trials won't be for a while, however.  For more, read the article here.
