A New Way to Extract Bone-Making Cells from Fat Tissue

A colorful expression:

By sorting human fat tissue cells by their expression of a certain gene, Brown University scientists, including doctoral student in Molecular Pharmacology & Physiology, Hetal Marble, were able to retrieve a high yield of cells that showed an especially strong propensity to make bone tissue. With more refinement, the method could improve the ability of surgeons to speed bone healing.
