Translating Stem Cell Research Into Therapies

Health : Medical News Today (3 years ago)

A new article published by Cell Press in the May 26 issue of the journal Neuron provides comprehensive insight into the current status of neural stem cell research and the sometimes labyrinthine pathways leading to stem cell-based t... Read Post

New way to grow neural stem cells may accelerate therapy development for brain injuries and disease

Health : Medical News Today (11 months ago)

Researchers have discovered a new, highly efficient way to produce neural stem cells from human pluripotent stem cells that can then go on to form neurons in the brain. The discovery, reported in the current issue of STEM CELLS Tran... Read Post

Growing up as a neural stem cell: The importance of clinging together and then letting go

Academics / General Science : Science Codex (2 years ago)

Can one feel too attached? Does one need to let go to mature? Neural stem cells have this problem, too. As immature cells, neural stem cells must stick together in a protected environment called a niche in order to divide so they ca... Read Post
