Stem cells are a valuable resource for medical and biological research, but are difficult to study due to ethical and societal barriers.
A group of researchers in Israel, the United States and other nations have made important advances in the rapidly-expanding field of "regenerative medicine," outlining for the first time connections in genetic regulation that normally prevent birth defects in heart and facial muscles.
Researchers from Duke University Medical Center recently revealed that they have been able to engineer cartilage from pluripotent stem cells, which will help in studies regarding cartilage injury and osteoarthritis.
Stem cell research has been a controversial, yet important advance in science and medicine for decades. Scientific research has been carried out in numerous areas pertaining to stem cells...
A study developed by researchers at the IDIBELL, led by Manel Esteller, has identified epigenetic changes that occur in adult stem cells to generate different tissues of the human body.
A research team from the University of California, Davis, has found evidence that a promising type of stem cell being considered for a variety of disease therapies is very similar to the type of cells that cause cancer.
Researchers from the Salk Institute recently studied the regeneration of new limbs in salamanders and believe that the findings could be useful in studies on regenerative medicine for humans.
Salk scientists show nine genes at heart of epigenetic changes in induced pluripotent stem cells
