New hydrogel stem cell treatment repairs injured brain tissue in mice

A new ‘hybrid’ hydrogel, which allows clinicians to safely deliver stem cells to the site of a brain injury in mice, has been developed by researchers from the University of Melbourne and the Australian National University.

A hydrogel is a water-based gel that can be used to deliver substances into the body and can be used to promote the effective growth of new cells.
