Scientists have created a functional 'beating' human heart muscle from stem cells, a significant step forward in cardiac disease research. Researchers at The University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia developed models of human heart tissue in the laboratory so they can study cardiac biology and diseases 'in a dish'.

"The patented technology enables us to now perform experiments on human heart tissue in the lab," said James Hudson from the UQ School of Biomedical Sciences. "This provides scientists with viable, functioning human heart muscle to work on, to model disease, screen new drugs and investigate heart repair," said Hudson.
