Anne D. Holden, PhD - Gladstone Institutes Gladstone's innovative technique in stem cells to boost scientists' ability to study - and potentially cure - genetic disease Sometimes biology is cruel. Sometimes simply a one-letter change in the human genetic code is the difference between health and a deadly disease. But even though doctors and scientists have long studied disorders caused by these tiny changes, replicating them to study in human stem cells has proven challenging. But now,...

Japanese Scientists Dip Blood Cells In Acid To Create Stem Cells
2014-01-29 12:32:21

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Japanese scientists, publishing a paper in the journal Nature, have developed a new method in which stem cells could now be made quickly just by dipping blood cells into acid. The human body is made up of cells designed for a specific task, but stem cells can become any other type of cell, giving them huge potential in future medicine. However, stem cells have been the source of heated ethics discussions because embryos have been the...

UCSF-led study sheds light on muscle-to-bone transformation Researchers have developed a new way to study bone disorders and bone growth, using stem cells from patients afflicted with a rare, genetic bone disease. The approach, based on Nobel-Prize winning techniques, could illuminate the illness, in which muscles and tendons progressively turn into bone, and addresses the similar destructive process that afflicts a growing number of veterans who have suffered blast injuries — including...

Public Endorses Stem Cell Research
