Embedded: A Benign Way to Nanowire Living Cells

One day it may be possible for physicians to use electrical stimulation to guide the development of embryonic stem cells into neurons, heart cells, lung cells, breast cells, muscles, and other specific cell types. Researchers with Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley, in collaboration with researchers at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease (GICD) in San Francisco, have taken a critical first step toward that goal.
