Jacco van Rheenen, Ph.D., of the Hubrecht Institute in The Netherlands has been named the winner of the 8th Annual STEM CELLS Young Investigator Award for his investigation on how healthy and tumorigenic tissues are derived from and maintained by cancer stem cells, how tumor cells disseminate from primary tumors and how these disseminated tumor cells grow out in distant organs. Durham, NC (PRWEB) December 10, 2013 Jacco van Rheenen, Ph.D., of the Hubrecht Institute in The Netherlands has...

Generating new cardiac muscle from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and/or induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) could fulfill the demand for therapeutic applications and drug testing. The production of a similar population of these cells remains a major limitation, but in a study just published in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, researchers now believe they have found a way to do this. Durham, NC (PRWEB) December 09, 2013 Generating new cardiac muscle from human embryonic stem cells...

Salk Institute Findings may lead to much-needed therapies for kidney disease Diseases affecting the kidneys represent a major and unsolved health issue worldwide. The kidneys rarely recover function once they are damaged by disease, highlighting the urgent need for better knowledge of kidney development and physiology. Now, a team of researchers led by scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has developed a novel platform to study kidney diseases, opening new avenues...

Genetic Variations Found In The Brain

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online While it was once believed that every cell in a person’s body contains the same DNA code, new research, led by experts at the Salk Institute, has found an unexpected level of variation among the genomes of different neurons originating from the same person’s brain. Previously, it was assumed that the way in which a genome is read imparts cell function and ultimately defines the individual, but the authors of the new study...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online For the first time, scientists from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies have taken stem cells from chimpanzees and bonobos and turned them into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), and their work has helped to highlight some of the differences between humans and non-human primates. This type of cell, which has the ability to form any other type of cell or tissue in the body, can be used to model diseases that would...


Word of the Day
barratry
  • The offense of persistently instigating lawsuits, typically groundless ones.
  • An unlawful breach of duty on the part of a ship's master or crew resulting in injury to the ship's owner.
  • Sale or purchase of positions in church or state.
