Artificial Muscles Could Help Advance Research on Muscular Dystrophy

These artificial muscles will be grown from human cells.

What makes artificial muscles unique is that new treatment options will be tested on structures grown from human cells, which is a huge step from running tests on mice muscles and human patients where it's difficult to actively gauge the results. This could mean that research for a cure could be at a more faster pace, from now on. This research will lead to a more personalized treatment option for those who suffer from any type of muscular dystrophy.
