Tiny scaffolding allows stem cells to become working fat cells

chances of becoming insulin-dependent, and lowering the likelihood they would develop type II diabetes," Kniss said.

He also suggested that the new approach might have commercial applications as a way of testing new drugs. "Small, three-dimensional cell colonies could be grown on multi-well assay plates and be used to test dozens of compounds at the same time," he explained.

"Since these cells better resemble how cells function in living tissue, they would offer a better test than current two-dimensional cell colonies provide." Kniss is currently working with an Ohio company to consider research on such new assay devices.
