Scientists create ‘mini-kidneys’ from human stem cells

Scientists from the Stalk Institute for Biological Studies in California have created 3D mini-kidney structures from human stem cells. The 3D structures were made from patient cells. Researchers hope that the mini-kidney structures will be used to understand the development of kidney disease. This knowledge will allow creation of improved drugs that target kidney disease.
