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

Transient Wave of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Production in Late Fetuses and Young Adults

A major challenge in regenerative medicine is producing tailor-made hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) for transplantation. For this we need a better understanding of where, when and how HSCs are ... read more

Some Skin Cancers May Start in Hair Follicles

Some of the most deadly skin cancers may start in stem cells that lend color to hair, and originate in hair follicles rather than in skin ... read more

Lymphatic System Found to Play Key Role in Hair Regeneration

To grow new hair, stem cells throughout the skin must work in sync. Researchers have discovered the molecular communication tool, part of the lymphatic system, that the cells use to synchronize their ... read more

Milk from Teeth: Dental Stem Cells Can Generate Milk-Producing Cells

Stem cells of the teeth can contribute to the regeneration of non-dental organs, namely mammary glands. According to a new study, dental epithelial stem cells from mice can generate mammary ducts and ... read more

Anti-Arthritis Drug Also Stops Tuberculosis Bacillus from Multiplying in Blood Stem Cells

Immunologists have shown that a drug used to fight arthritis also stops the process that allows the tuberculosis bacillus to infect and hijack blood stem ... read more

Embryonic Development: Earlier Origin of Neural Crest Cells

Neural crest cells have been thought to originate in the ectoderm, the outermost of the three germ layers formed in the earliest stages of embryonic development. But their capacity to form ... read more

'Instant Liver, Just Add Water'? Not Quite, but a Better Way to Grow Multiple Organs

Pluripotent stem cells can be used to make experimental models of organ systems, but current techniques often produce models that bear limited resemblance to true organs. Researchers developed an ... read more

A Compound Effective to Chemotherapy-Resistant Cancer Cells Identified

A compound effective in killing chemotherapy-resistant glioblastoma-initiating cells (GICs) has been identified, raising hopes of producing drugs capable of eradicating refractory tumors with low ... read more

When Added to Gene Therapy, Plant-Based Compound May Enable Faster, More Effective Treatments

Today's standard process for administering gene therapy is expensive and time-consuming -- a result of the many steps required to deliver the healthy genes into the patients' blood stem ... read more

Embryo's Early Development Revealed in a Dish
