Scientists uncover how immune cells sense who they are
Scientists at the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), a part of the National Institutes of Health, have demonstrated that DNA previously thought to be "junk" plays a critical role ...
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.
Direct generation of neural stem cells could enable transplantation therapy
Induced neural stem cells (iNSCs) created from adult cells hold promise for therapeutic transplantation, but their potential in this capacity has been limited by failed efforts to maintain such cells in the desirable multi-potent ...
Scientists develop novel method to generate functional hepatocytes for drug testing
Scientists have for the first time produced liver cells from adult skin cells using the induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology.
