Stem cell research provides hope for tasmanian devils with a deadly, transmissible cancer

(Morris Animal Foundation) Using stem cell therapy, Morris Animal Foundation-funded researcher Dr. Deanne Whitworth and her colleagues at the University of Queensland, have taken the first step toward developing an effective treatment for devil facial tumor disease (DFTD), which is decimating Tasmanian devils in the wild. The team's findings were recently published in Stem Cells and Development.
