Did you know?

York scientists were the first to create human bladder tissue in the laboratory and this is now being used to find new treatments for bladder diseases including cancer.

Bladder cancer is the seventh commonest cancer, affecting twice as many men as women. Researchers from the Jack Birch Unit at the University of York have discovered a way to grow human bladder tissue in the laboratory, which can be used to study bladder diseases and to tissue-engineer replacement bladders.
