Novel 3-D heart to help improve cardiac treatment
Researchers have found a way to create three dimensional (3-D) heart tissue that beats in synchronised harmony which could lead to better understanding of cardiac health and improved treatments. This breakthrough will allow better and earlier drug testing, and potentially eliminate harmful or toxic medications sooner.

Until now, most 2-D and 3-D in-vitro tissue did not beat in harmony and required scaffolding for the cells to hold onto and grow, causing limitations.
