First Human Skeletal Muscle Grown in the Lab to Contract with Electrical Pulses

Researchers at Duke University has successfully grown human skeletal muscle fibres in the labratory and got them to contract under electrical impulses. Previously, researchers were able to grow muscles tissues in the lab but they were not able to get to “come alive” so to speak.

Are we getting closer to the days where degenerative muscles diseases can be combated?
