Cambridge Research Team Observe Auxeticity in Embryonic Stem Cell Nucleii

Cambridge Research Team Observe Auxeticity in Embryonic Stem Cell Nucleii

Stem cells – the body's master cells – demonstrate a bizarre property never before seen at a cellular level, according to a study published today from scientists at the University of Cambridge. The property – known as auxeticity – is one which may have application as wide-ranging as soundproofing, super-absorbent sponges and bulletproof vests. [More]
