Cell Replacement Therapies are One Step Closer

Cell Replacement Therapies are One Step Closer

A new method for efficient embryonic stem cell differentiation may contribute to the development of techniques for using stem cells as ‘spare parts’ for body organs and tissues. In a study conducted at the Georgia Institute of Technology, researchers found ...

How Embryonic Stem Cells Become Tissue Specific

It has been unclear for many years how embryonic stem cells develop to their final destination as a specific tissue of the grown organism. Recently, a collaborative research group from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, the US National Institutes of ...

Heart Cells Generated from Skin Cells

Researchers at UCLA have successfully derived mice skin cells into a variety of heart tissue and blood cells. All the cells composing the heart were created out of stem cells originally generated from the mice’s skin. This research could contribute ...
