Scientists have found evidence to support long-standing anecdotes that stress causes hair graying. Researchers found that in mice, the type of nerve involved in the ... read more

Tendon Stem Cells Could Revolutionize Injury Recovery

The buildup of scar tissue makes recovery from torn rotator cuffs, jumper's knee, and other tendon injuries a painful, challenging process, often leading to secondary tendon ruptures. New research ... read more

A Swifter Way Towards 3D-Printed Organs

Twenty people die waiting for an organ transplant every day in the US, but lab-grown organs so far lack the cellular density, vasculature, and functions required to make them viable replacements. The ... read more

Brain Waves Detected in Mini-Brains Grown in a Dish

Scientists have created miniature brains from stem cells that developed functional neural networks. Despite being a million times smaller than human brains, these lab-grown brains are the first ... read more

Mutations in Donors' Stem Cells May Cause Problems for Cancer Patients

A new study suggests that extremely rare, harmful genetic mutations present in healthy donors' stem cells -- though not causing health problems in the donors -- may be passed on to cancer ... read more

First Genomic Study of Puberty Yields Insights Into Development and Cancer

In the first-ever genome-scale analysis of the puberty process in humans, researchers outline distinct and critical changes to stem cells in males during ... read more

'Census' in the Zebrafish's Brain

Scientists have succeeded in determining the number and type of newly formed neurons in zebrafish; practically conducting a 'census' in their brains. Following an injury, zebrafish form new ... read more

Strong Change of Course for Muscle Research

Scientists have discovered a new subtype of muscle stem cells. These cells have the ability to build and regenerate new muscles, making them interesting targets for the development of gene ... read more

Immune Outposts Inside Kidney Tumors Predict Post-Surgery Outcomes

Patients with well-supported immune cells in their tumors are more likely to control their cancers' growth for a longer time, an observation that could guide treatment decisions after surgery ... read more

New Bone Healing Mechanism Has Potential Therapeutic Applications

A new mechanism that contributes to adult bone maintenance and repair opens the possibility of developing therapeutic strategies for improving bone ... read more

Scientists Push Bioprinting Capability Forward

Scientists are reporting using bioprinting to print a tracheal tissue construct comprising of multiple different functional materials. They printed different designs of smooth muscle and cartilage ... read more

Transition to Exhaustion: Clues for Cancer Immunotherapy

Research on immune cells 'exhausted' by chronic viral infection provides clues on how to refine cancer immunotherapy. The Immunity paper defines a transitional stage in between stem-like ... read more

How Stem Cells Decide Their Identity

Several hundred different cell types of the adult human body are formed during embryonic development, starting from just a few identical stem cells. The differentiation potential of the cells is ... read more

New Technique Visually Depicts How Cancer Cells Grow and Spread in Colon Tissue

Researchers have observed how stem cell mutations quietly arise and spread throughout a widening field of the colon until they eventually predominate and become a ... read more

Stem Cell Therapy Helps Broken Hearts Heal in Unexpected Way

A study shows stem cell therapy helps hearts recover from a heart attack, although not for the biological reasons originally proposed two decades ago that today are the basis of ongoing clinical ... read more

Silencing Retroviruses to Awaken Cell Potential

Silencing of retroviruses in the human genome is a crucial step in the production of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from somatic cells. Researchers led by a team from the University of ... read more

Cerebral Organoid Model Provides Clues About How to Prevent Virus-Induced Brain Cell Death

Scientists have determined that La Crosse virus (LACV), which can cause inflammation of the brain in children, affects brain cells differently depending on their developmental stage. A new study ... read more

Intestinal Stem Cell Genes May Link Dietary Fat and Colon Cancer

Two genes that appear to help stem cells in the intestine burn dietary fat may play a role in colon cancer, according to a new study. The study describes a new connection between the way cells ... read more

Complex Organ Models Grown in the Lab

Scientists have successfully produced human tissues from stem cells. They have a complexity similar to that of normal tissue and are far superior to previous ... read more

RNA Regulation Is Crucial for Embryonic Stem Cell Differentiation

Nuclear RNA levels are kept in check by RNA decay factors. Now, researchers show that an excess of RNA in the nucleus can have negative effects on a crucial regulator of stem cell ... read more

Discovery: New Biomarker for Cancer Stem Cells

Medical researchers have discovered a new biomarker in cancer stem cells that govern cancer survival and spread, and it's raising hope that drug discovery to kill cancer stem cells could follow ... read more

Protein Could Offer Therapeutic Target for Pancreatic Cancer

A protein that drives growth of pancreatic cancer, and which could be a target for new treatments, has been ... read more

Human Heart Cells Are Altered by Spaceflight, but Return to (Mostly) Normal on Earth

Heart muscle cells derived from stem cells show remarkable adaptability to their environment during and after spaceflight, according to a new study. The researchers examined cell-level cardiac ... read more
