Image: University of Michigan researchers have found that mechanical forces in the environment of human embryonic stem cells influences how they differentiate, or morph into the body\'s different cell types. To arrive at the findings, they cultured the stem cells on ultrafine carpets made of microscopic posts (Photo courtesy of Ye Tao, Rose Anderson, Yubing Sun, and Jianping Fu).
