UTRECHT (NL), February 2020 — Whereas the CRISPR-Cas technology developed in 2012 cuts out a defect in a gene and replaces it with a new piece, the latest CRISPR technology works differently. The aim is to repair the error in the DNA without cutting it.

PORTO ALEGRE (BR), February 2020 — Medulloblastoma, the most common brain cancer in children, may arise from biological abnormalities in neural stem cells or neuronal precursors during embryonic development.

February 24, 2020

RIO DE JANEIRO (BR), February 2020 — Astrocytes are neural cells with many important functions in the nervous system. The inflammation of these cells occurs in brain infections and neurodegenerative disorders, a process called astrogliosis.

NUTLEY, NJ (US), February 2020 — Reversing runaway inflammation in the bone marrow could lead to major breakthroughs in treatments for some blood cancers, according to a new publication by scientists at Hackensack Meridian Health's Center for Discovery and Innovation (CDI).

February 18, 2020

UTRECHT (NL), February 2020 — Researchers from the Hubrecht Institute and the Max Planck Institute have revealed how an essential protein helps to activate genomic DNA during the conversion of regular adult human cells into stem cells.

February 18, 2020

STANFORD, CA (US), February 2020 — Every cell in our body has a computer-like control system that sends biological signals through thousands of circuits to monitor the cell's needs and regulate its responses.

February 18, 2020

KOBE (JP), February 2020 — Researchers at Kobe University's Graduate School of Medicine have developed the world's first congenital pituitary hypoplasia (CPH) model using patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).

February 14, 2020

NEW ROCHELLE, NY (US), February 2020 — Two distinct approaches are predominantly used to recapitulate physiologically relevant in vitro human organ models.
