Gladstone Institutes Joint Gladstone-UCSF study highlights novel reprogramming method; offers new hope for treating liver failure SAN FRANCISCO, CA—February 23, 2014 — The power of regenerative medicine now allows scientists to transform skin cells into cells that closely resemble heart cells, pancreas cells and even neurons. However, a method to generate cells that are fully mature—a crucial prerequisite for life-saving therapies—has proven far more difficult. But now,...

Scientists Develop New Molecular 'Cocktail' To Transform Skin Cells Into Beating Heart Cells

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...
