Investigators at Johns Hopkins report they have developed human induced-pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) capable of repairing damaged retinal vascular tissue in mice. The stem cells, derived from human umbilical cord-blood and coaxed into an embryonic-like state, were grown without the conventional use of viruses, which can mutate genes and initiate cancers, according to the scientists. Their safer method of growing the cells has drawn increased support among scientists, they say, and paves the...

HOLLISTON, Mass., Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In an era long, long ago, there was only one way to make something grow--seed it, feed it, water it, love it, give it some sunshine. Today, there are many more ways to make something "grow." We are living in a new era, one in which the science and technology is here to regenerate tissue and organs, not just from lab rats, but also from cows and humans. Recently, the world's first synthetic hamburger was made out of meat from the muscle...

Researchers Discover How Calcium Phosphate Can Make Stem Cells Become Bone-building Cells
2014-01-07 08:10:29

University of California, San Diego With the help of biomimetic matrices, a research team led by bioengineers at the University of California, San Diego has discovered exactly how calcium phosphate can coax stem cells to become bone-building cells. This work is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences the week of Jan. 6, 2014. UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering professor Shyni Varghese and colleagues have traced a surprising pathway from these biomaterials...
