CHAPEL HILL, NC (US) July 2018 - A small population of brain cells deep in a memory-making region of the brain controls the production of new neurons and may have a role in common brain disorders, according to a study from scientists at the University of North Carolina (UNC)

SAN DIEGO, CA (US)  July 2018 - The therapeutic potential of human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are capable of becoming almost any type of cell in the human body, is well-recognized and broadly pursued, but their mutational burden has not yet been fully

July 25, 2018

A City of Hope scientist has discovered a gene-editing technology that could efficiently and accurately correct the genetic defects that underlie certain diseases.

July 23, 2018

Scientists from the New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute have developed a new bone engineering technique called Segmental Additive Tissue Engineering (SATE).

It’s tempting to think all it takes to regrow arteries lost to heart disease is encouraging the proliferation of new blood vessel cells, but that hasn’t worked out. Now, Stanford biologist Kristy Red-Horse, Ph.D., and colleagues think they’ve figured out part of the problem.

July 18, 2018

Human stem cells are of great interest in the fields of regenerative medicine and research because they reproduce indefinitely and can differentiate into every other cell type found in the body.

July 18, 2018

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have found that a gene previously known to control human metabolism also controls the equilibrium of bone and fat in bone marrow as well as how an adult stem cell expresses its final cell type.

July 16, 2018

What if cancer cells could be re-engineered to turn against their own kind? A new study led by researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, Mass., leverages the power of gene editing to take a critical step toward using cancer cells to kill cancer.
