Researchers move their engineered biosphincters from a rodent model to a successful large animal model in the hope of treating fecal incontinence in human patients

Controlling Stem Cells with an Engineered DNA Culture System

A new study describes how a novel engineered DNA culture system may facilitate stem cell studies and the construction of enhanced biomaterials

Primitive Neural Stem Cells: It’s Quiescent at the Top!

Researchers describe the existence of a quiescent primitive neural stem cell type that can proliferate and replenish definitive neural stem cells when required

Electric New Study Guides NSC Migration to Enhance Neurological Disease Therapies

A new study demonstrates the guidance of neural stem cell migration in the mammalian brain employing applied electric fields

Physiological Status Promotes the Selective Activation of Regional Specific Adult Neural Stem Cells

Research indicates that hypothalamic neurons innervate regional-specific SVZ-NSCs to produce neural cells in response to physiological status

New Tool Aims to Advance NSC-based Anti-tumor Therapies

A new study describes a new quantitative tool to assess the fate of NSCs and their anti-tumor cargo in a mouse model of brain cancer

Heart Failure and Memory Loss: Is Angiotensin II the Missing Link?

A new study highlights the mechanisms by which heart failure leads to memory loss and in doing so, may have found a means to reduce this significant comorbidity

Identifying and Characterizing Neural Stem Cells in the Adult Spinal Cord

Researchers identify and characterize different neural stem cell populations derived from the spinal cord and describe how injury and MBP control their activity
