By Maria H. Ledran

In the mid 1930’s the unlikely collaborators aviator Charles Lindberg and maverick surgeon Alexis Carrel, were the first to sustain whole organs outside the body for extended periods using their newly invented glass perfusion pumps. Arguably the unique methods set out by the pair including the anastomy (suturing) of even the most miniscule blood vessels and...

From Cell Stem Cell

Research published in the 6th August edition of Cell Stem Cell suggests that human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) may be more similar than previously thought. This research, from the laboratory of...

From Nature

The long term success of limbal stem cell (LSC) therapy to treat blindness has been highlighted in an article from Nature News & Views. LSCs reside in the narrow zone between the cornea and conjunctiva and are essential for corneal clarity and the efficient...

Our latest news section recently highlighted the publication of two advance articles from Nature and Nature Biotechnology which suggest that induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) retain memories of the differentiated...

By Stuart P. Atkinson

Delineation of the mechanisms by which embryonic stem cells (ESC) remain pluripotent and maintain the ability to differentiate across all germ lineages has attracted many studies which altogether can be consolidated into an information network which combines transcription factors, chromatin and DNA modifications, small RNAs and signal transduction...

August 5, 2010 | Pluripotent Stem Cells

By Stuart P. Atkinson

The potential applications of human embryonic stem cells (hESC) in regenerative medicine are far reaching, but the need for large numbers of these cells requires prolonged in vitro culture which can lead to the accumulation of unwanted genetic changes and potentially, tumorigenicity.
