Gartner named one of Popular Science’s “Brilliant 10” of 2015
By UCSF School of Pharmacy Editorial Staff / Wed Sep 30, 2015
The next frontier in developing therapies for cancer and other diseases could come through studying organ development or tumor growth in living humans. Problem is, there’s no ethical way of doing that using current technology.
Zev Gartner, PhD, has focused on the next best thing: His lab is building fully functioning 3-D human tissue, cell by cell.
This groundbreaking work has earned Gartner a spot among Popular Science’s “Brilliant 10” this year. The annual list celebrates “the most inspired young scientists and engineers – researchers whose ideas will transform the future.”
