Latest Outline of cell biology Stories
The human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself.
Stem cells are ideal tools to understand disease and develop new treatments; however, they can be difficult to obtain in necessary quantities.
New research led by UC Davis scientists provides insight into why some body organs are more susceptible to cell death than others and could eventually lead to advances in treating or preventing heart attack or stroke.
Dr. Peggy Goodell, one of Baylor College of Medicine's leading stem cell researchers, will be presented with the 2011 Edith and Peter O'Donnell award in medicine at the annual meeting of The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas Jan. 6-7, 2011, in Austin.
Researchers funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) at the University of Oxford have uncovered a clue that may help to explain why the earliest evidence of complex multicellular animal life appears around 550 million years ago, when atmospheric oxygen levels on the planet rose sharply from 3% to their modern day level of 21%.
PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Society for Cell Biology, in collaboration with Glencoe Software, Inc. and the Open Microscopy Environment (OME), today announce the launch of The Cell: An Image Library at the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology.

MADISON, Wis., Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellular Dynamics International's (CDI) iCell(TM) Cardiomyocytes have been recognized among the top five winners of the "Top 10 Innovations of 2010" by The Scientist magazine.
Researchers from Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah report that they have identified a previously undiscovered trigger mechanism for a quality control checkpoint at the very end of the cell division process in a paper to be published in the November 29 issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and online today.
Cell is a peer-reviewed scientific journal founded by Benjamin Lewin in January 1974 with the sponsorship of MIT Press. Lewin bought the rights to the journal in 1986 and published it under his own publishing arm Cell Press. Cell Press was sold to Elsevier in 1999, which currently publishes Cell twice monthly. Cell Press publishes several biomedical journals, including Cell, Neuron, Immunity, Molecular Cell, Developmental Cell, Cancer Cell, Current Biology, Structure, Chemistry &...
