Magnetic cellular 'Legos' for the regenerative medicine of the future

(CNRS) By incorporating magnetic nanoparticles in cells and developing a system using miniaturized magnets, researchers have succeeded in creating cellular magnetic 'Legos.' They were able to aggregate cells using only magnets and without an external supporting matrix, with the cells then forming a tissue that can be deformed at will.
