Cell adaptation helps repair damage

Genetic processes that allow cells to transform so they can mend damaged nerves have been identified by scientists. Their insights on tissue repair could advance the search for drug therapies to improve regeneration after injury, experts say. Researchers focused on injury to cells in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) – the crucial network of nerves…
