ICH researchers develop a technique to 'print' healthy new tissue

A pioneering international study led by the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (ICH) has seen researchers develop a photosensitive bio-gel that uses light treatment to ‘print’ healthy new tissue directly into specific tissues and organs, and sustain blood supply that would allow it to thrive, according to results published in the Nature Biomedical Engineering journal today (22nd June).

Genetic study of over 1,000 people sheds new light on immune-system disorders

Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) can provide a more accurate diagnosis for patients with missing or poorly functioning immune systems, while providing new insight into complex genetic causes, according to results of a new international study involving researchers from the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (ICH).
