Mini-kidneys successfully grown from stem cells - Institute for Molecular Bioscience - The University of Queensland, Australia [cached]

Professor Melissa Little and her team from Murdoch Childrens Research Institute (MCRI) and The University of Queensland (UQ) first grew a mini-kidney in a dish in 2013.

"The first mini-kidney we grew only contained two key cell types," Professor Little said.
Professor Little, who moved from UQ's Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB) to MCRI this year, said the breakthrough could allow the use of mini-organs to screen drugs to treat kidney disease or find out if a new drug is likely to injure the kidney.
"The mini-kidney we have been able to grow this time is very complex and more like the real organ," Professor Little said.
"Making stem cells from patients with kidney disease, and then growing a mini-kidney that matches the patient, will help us understand that patient's disease and develop treatments for them," Professor Little said.
