Researchers at Queen Mary University of London have shown for the first time that the specialized role stem cells go on to perform is controlled by primary cilia –tiny hair-like structures protruding from a cell. Stem cells are capable of becoming any cell type within the body through the process of differentiation. The discovery has the potential for application in the development of new therapies for a range of medical treatments where scientists aim to replace or regenerate tissues...

Scientists and surgeons at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre have discovered a promising new approach to treating colorectal cancer by disarming the gene that drives self-renewal in stem cells that are the root cause of disease, resistance to treatment and relapse. Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death in the Western world. "This is the first step toward clinically applying the principles of cancer stem cell biology to control cancer growth and advance the...
