Body: In a world first, scientists have found a new way to direct stem cells to heart tissue. The findings could radically improve the treatment for cardiovascular disease, which causes more than a quarter of all deaths in the UK (1).

Body: Stem cell stimulation shows promise as a potential noninvasive stroke treatment, according to new research. If extended to humans, this technique could greatly improve patients' quality of life.
June 27, 2019
Body: Scientists have created natural-looking hair that grows through the skin using human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), a major scientific achievement that could revolutionize the hair growth industry.

Body: Fleeting differences in gene expression between individuals that occur at different points in time during cell development may have consequences on the ultimate risk for disease in mature tissues and cell types.
June 27, 2019
Body: Researchers have developed a method to stimulate human stem cells to organize themselves into ordered layers of different cell types. The method is based on microfluidics and can help better understand how tissues are formed in the embryo, setting the stage for fabricating functional tissues and organs for drug testing and transplantation.
June 26, 2019
Body: Researchers suggest a possible cell-based therapy to stimulate lung development in fragile premature infants who suffer from a rare condition called Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD), which in the most severe cases can lead to lifelong breathing problems and even death. Scientists studied genetic signatures in donated human neonatal lungs by using single-cell RNA sequencing analysis and mouse models of BPD.
June 24, 2019
Body: For the first time, scientists can record cells communicating in real time, opening the floodgates for new developments in cell therapy and other areas within cell biology.
June 20, 2019
Body: Researchers found that embryonic stem cells commit to a cell fate far more rapidly than anticipated.
June 19, 2019
Body: Cell biologists shed light on the very first step stem cells go through to turn into the specialized cells that make up organs. The findings implicate the ability of proteins to hang around in cells -- their stability -- as a major factor in controlling a stem cell's state, and in the decision to remain a stem cell or transform into a specialized cell.
June 18, 2019
Body: Researchers have discovered the mechanism behind how neural stem cells in fruit flies are activated to stimulate the generation of new brain cells.
