Former Vice President Al Gore Endorses Trans-Pacific Collaboration to Promote Use of Patient Cells for Drug Discovery and Development and Cell-Based Therapies SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., and KYOTO, Japan, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- iZumi Bio, Inc., and Kyoto University's Center for iPS Cell Research and Application (CiRA), today announced a collaboration to promote the basic research, development and application of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell technology - a form of cellular...
A team of UCSF researchers has for the first time used tiny molecules called microRNAs to help turn adult mouse cells back to their embryonic state.
The simple recipe scientists earlier discovered for making adult stem cells behave like embryonic-like stem cells just got even simpler. A new report in the February 6th issue of the journal Cell,
Whitehead Institute researchers have greatly simplified the creation of so-called induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, cutting the number of viruses used in the reprogramming process from four to one.
Researchers claim they developed a safer way to make powerful stem cells from ordinary skin cells, improving research focused on so-called regenerative medicine.
A team of scientists at IBM (NYSE: IBM) and the Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) have discovered that microRNAs --small molecules that are an important regulatory component in the machinery of living cells -- actually regulate the differentiation of stem cells and have roles that go way beyond what was previously thought.
