An unexpected discovery from +Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health offers new insight into the mechanisms of asthma and other diseases: http://hvrd.me/QOdUt

Researchers create a new method of producing muscle cells that could offer a better model for studying muscle diseases, such as muscular dystrophy, and for testing potential treatments.

#health   #science  
Harvard researchers report that by identifying and mimicking important developmental cues, they have been able to drive cells to grow into muscle fibers capable of contracting in a dish and multiplying in large numbers. This new method of producing muscle cells could offer a better model for studying muscle diseases, such as muscular dystrophy, and for testing potential treatments.
