Latest Induced pluripotent stem cell Stories
A new method of maturing human heart cells that simulates the natural growth environment of heart cells while applying electrical pulses to mimic the heart rate of fetal humans has led researchers at the University of Toronto to an electrifying step forward for cardiac research.
“Complete 2012-13 Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Industry Report” on Market Metrics, Dynamics, and Trends is the new and updated market research report added to the online library of ReportsnReports.com.
A team of researchers believe they are a step closer to overcoming the obstacles keeping artificial livers from becoming a reality.
By reengineering skin cells from individuals with Down syndrome, researchers were able to study how stem cells develop into dysfunctional brain cells when they contain an extra copy of chromosome 21, the genetic cause of the disorder.
Researchers at Oregon Health & Science University (OSHU) and the Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) have successfully reprogrammed human skin cells to become embryonic stem cells capable of transforming into any other cell type in the body.
