Stem Cells Help Researchers Study the Effects of Pollution on Human Health

Aug. 10, 2015 — Embryonic stem cells could serve as a model to evaluate the physiological effects of environmental pollutants efficiently and cost-effectively. The use of stem cells has found another facade. In the ... read more

Aug. 5, 2015 — Scientists have, for the first time, found further evidence of how the differentiation of pluripotent cells is tied to and controlled by the cell cycle clock. This deeper understanding of how cells ... read more

From Pluripotency to Totipotency

Aug. 4, 2015 — While it is already possible to obtain in vitro pluripotent cells (i.e., cells capable of generating all tissues of an embryo) from any cell type, researchers have pushed the limits of science even ... read more

Precision Medicine Brought One Step Closer to the Clinic

Aug. 3, 2015 — A revolutionary, high-throughput, robotic platform has been designed that automates and standardizes the process of transforming patient samples into stem cells. This unique platform for the first ... read more

Aug. 3, 2015 — Investigators report that they have been able to drive cells to grow into muscle fibers, producing millimeter-long muscle fibers capable of contracting in a dish and multiplying in large numbers. ... read more

July 30, 2015 — Evaluating drug-induced liver injury is a critical part of pharmaceutical drug discovery and must be carried out on human liver cells. Now, scientists report that they produced large amounts of ... read more

How a Single Molecule Turns One Immune Cell Into Another

July 30, 2015 — All it takes is one molecule to reprogram an antibody-producing B cell into a scavenging macrophage. This transformation is possible, new evidence shows, because the molecule (C/EBPa, a transcription ... read more

July 29, 2015 — A first-of-its kind prostate 'organoid' grown from human embryonic stem cells has enabled researchers to show that exposure to bisphenol A, a chemical in many plastics, can cause ... read more
