Artificial Muscles Could Help Advance Research on Muscular Dystrophy

Dr. Tedesco believes that this development will lead to new therapies.

"Our findings are expected to facilitate the development of therapies for incurable forms of muscular dystrophy by providing a novel way to test treatments in a personalized fashion and on multiple cell types at the same time. They could also help in developing artificial muscles for tissue replacement," added Dr. Tedesco.
