Artificial skin created using stem cells from umbilical cord

In a first, scientists have grown artificial skin using stem cells derived from the umbilical cord.

Artificial skin grown from umbilical cord stem cells

Scientists have artificially-grown skin for major burn patients, since the skin could be stored in tissue banks and made available when needed.

Scientists develop `skin` for robots

European scientists have engineered artificial skins and sensor technologies to augment "sensitivity" in robots, says a study.

`Smart` artificial skin could give robots adaptive sense of touch

Using bundles of vertical zinc oxide nanowires, researchers have fabricated arrays of piezotronic transistors capable of converting mechanical motion directly into electronic controlling signals.

Now, artificial skin that can sense touch and heal itself

Stanford University scientists have succeeded in making the first material that can both sense subtle pressure and heal itself when torn or cut.

Now, artificial skin that can be given any shape

In some good news for burn victims and sufferers of other skin-related conditions, replacement skin may soon be easily available as scientists have engineered artificial skin by mixing biomaterials.

Spider silk may be the answer for artificial skin

The secret to creating artificial skin may lie in spider silk -- the toughest known natural material, scientists say.
