Stem Cells and Development is globally recognized as the trusted source for critical, even controversial coverage of emerging hypotheses and novel findings. With a focus on stem cells of all tissue types and their potential therapeutic applications, the Journal provides clinical, basic, and translational scientists with cutting-edge research and findings.
First evidence that very small embryonic-like stem cells from human adult tissues are multipotent
Rare, very small embryonic-like stem cells (VSELs) isolated from human adult tissues could provide a new source for developing regenerative therapies to repair complex tissues damaged by disease or trauma. ...
Horses set to gain health benefits from stem cell advance
Horses suffering from neurological conditions similar to those that affect humans could be helped by a breakthrough from stem cell scientists.
Human stem cell-derived hepatocytes regenerate liver function
Researchers have generated functional hepatocytes from human stem cells, transplanted them into mice with acute liver injury, and shown the ability of these stem-cell derived human liver cells to function normally and increase ...
