Coverage of the latest news and updates from the field of stem cells and regenerative medicine.
HEIDELBERG (DE), January 2021 — A characteristic feature of all stem cells is their ability to self-renew. But how is this potential maintained throughout life?
BOSTON, MA (US), January 2021 — What if scientists knew exactly what impact the SARS-CoV-2 virus had inside our lung cells within the first few hours of being infected?
SAN DIEGO, CA (US), January 2021 — Since stem cells can continually self-regenerate and differentiate into many different specialized cell types, they play an important role in our development and health.
SINGAPORE, January 2021 — Blood is vital to life, and a healthy body replenishes worn-out blood cells with new ones throughout one’s lifetime. If something goes wrong with this process, serious illness will result.
KOBE (JP), January 2021 — A Kobe University research group including graduate student Shinichi Ishii and associate professor Yoshio Katayama, M.D., Ph.D.
SAN DIEGO, CA (US), January 2021 — Many patients with multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer, eventually develop resistance to one treatment after another. That’s in part because cancer stem cells drive the disease — cells that continually self-renew.
CHICAGO, IL (US), January 2021 — University of Illinois Chicago is one of the U.S.
SYDNEY (AU), January 2021 —A new type of stem cell could be closer on the horizon, a study led by University of New South Wales (UNSW) shows.
HEIDELBERG (DE), January 2021 — Development of an in vitro human-derivedtissue model for studying virus infection and disease progression in the alveolar cells of the lungs responsible for oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange with the blood might enable the study of p
