The first of its kind reveals how stem cells become sensory interneurons

Researchers at Eli and the Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA have developed a first-of-its-kind roadmap that describes how stem cells become sensory interneurons -; the cells that enable sensations such as touch, pain and itching. The study, performed using embryonic stem cells from mice, also identified a method …

Stem cells are inflated: We are one step closer to making organs in a dish

Using a mouse model, researchers have deciphered an alternative path taken by certain cells to make organs and used that knowledge to utilize a new type of stem cell as a potential source of organs in a dish. Imagine if you could repair damaged tissue in our organs. This is what stem cell research is …
