Team's Research Leads To Creation Of Muscle From Tissue Cells

For most of us, going to the gym is the best way to build muscle. But for some scientists, the laboratory is an ideal spot.

A team led by Professor Nenad Bursac of Duke University did research that led to the creation of functional muscle from tissue cells.

And that progress could end up helping people who have degenerative diseases.

Nenad Bursac is with me to talk about what he and his team have accomplished.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
