Nature's Toolbox: Seaweed's role in enhancing collagen production for regenerative medicine

Giulia Giuffredi (PhD Candidate, University College Dublin)
When we grow stem cells in a lab dish, they don't produce collagen as efficiently as they would in our bodies. The addition of a seaweed makes stem cells start producing more collagen and components that help build tissues. This phenomenon has a potential for regenerative medicine.
