Scientists have used pluripotent stem cells to generate human stomach tissues in a petri dish that can produce acid and digestive enzymes. The researchers, at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, grew the tissues from the stomach's corpus/fundus region.

One of the most significant ways in which the human brain is unique is the size and structure of the cerebral cortex. But what drives the growth of the human cortex, likely the foundation for our unique intellectual abilities?

Scientists at the Salk Institute have studied a 3D "mini-brain" grown from human stem cells and found it to be structurally and functionally more similar to real brains than the 2D models in widespread use.

December 27, 2016

In a first-in-children randomized clinical study, medical researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UM SOM) and the Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute (ISCI) at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine have begun testing to see whether adult stem cells derived from

Neural stem cells have been found in epileptic brain tissue — outside the regions of the brain where they normally reside.

December 21, 2016

Blood-forming stem cells are able to count and store memories of the number of times that they divide, findings that could have major implications for disease research, scientists at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have found.

December 19, 2016

A "living bandage" made from stem cells, which could revolutionize the treatment and prognosis of a common sporting knee injury, has been tested in humans for the first time by scientists at the Universities of Liverpool and Bristol.
