Nanochip Placed on Skin Can Develop New Cells, Repair Organs with a Simple Zap!
Who knew that a zapping sound could sound so magical and hold so much promise! Researchers from Ohio State University have made this possible by developing an innovative nanochip that can develop new cells within the body “simply by acting on the skin.”
This game-changing technology is known as Tissue Nanotransfection and it involves a nanotechnology-based chip that zaps with a small electrical charge. The nanochip technology can reportedly help convert an adult cell from one type to another, grow cells, repair damaged organs and restore the function of aging tissue in organs, blood vessels, and nerve cells, IFL Science reports.
While it has only been tested on pigs and mice, researchers found some incredible results. The nanochip helped a brain-injured mouse recover from a stroke. The growth of brain cells on human skin (then injected in the brain) could also help patients with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
