International Leaders to Share Unparalleled Achievements in Stem Cell Research at DIA Annual Meeting Washington (PRWEB) April 15, 2014 Research that resulted in the first stem cells that are pluripotent—those that have the potential to differentiate into almost any cell in the body—will be the backdrop for a discussion about trends in regulation in the field of regenerative medicine at the DIA 2014 50th Annual Meeting, June 15 to 19 in San Diego. Chaired by Shinji Miyake, professor of...

By studying nerve cells that originated in patients with a severe neurological disease, a University of Wisconsin-Madison researcher has pinpointed an error in protein formation that could be the root of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Also called Lou Gehrig's disease, ALS causes paralysis and death. According to the ALS Association, as many as 30,000 Americans are living with ALS. After a genetic mutation was discovered in a small group of ALS patients, scientists transferred that gene...

[ Watch the Video: First Stem Cell Study of Bipolar Disorder Yields Promising Results ] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Bipolar disorder affects 200 million people globally, and yet there are so many questions surrounding the condition. Why are individuals with bipolar disorder prone to manic highs and deep, depressed lows? If there is no single gene to blame, why does bipolar disorder run so strongly in families? And why, with the enormous number of people...

Stem Cells Turned Into Skeletal Muscle Cells And Muscle Progenitors
2014-03-24 08:27:37

David Tenenbaum, University of Wisconsin-Madison As stem cells continue their gradual transition from the lab to the clinic, a research group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has discovered a new way to make large concentrations of skeletal muscle cells and muscle progenitors from human stem cells. The new method, described in the journal Stem Cells Translational Medicine, could be used to generate large numbers of muscle cells and muscle progenitors directly from human...

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
2014-02-20 13:40:34

Gladstone Institutes Gladstone-led study represents important step towards pharmaceutical-based therapies that regenerate heart muscle The power of regenerative medicine appears to have turned science fiction into scientific reality—by allowing scientists to transform skin cells into cells that closely resemble beating heart cells. However, the methods required are complex, and the transformation is often incomplete. But now, scientists at the Gladstone Institutes have devised a new...
