Starving Stem Cells May Enable Scientists To Build Better Blood Vessels
Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine have uncovered how changes in metabolism of human embryonic stem cells help coax them to mature into specific cell types — and may improve their function in engineered organs or tissues.
Long-Term Culturing of Adult Stem Cells
A new procedure developed by Harvard Stem Cell Institute researchers (HSCI) at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) may revolutionize the culturing of adult stem cells.
Naked Mole Rat Exhibits “Extraordinary” Cancer Resistance
Scientists are getting closer to understanding the anti-cancer mechanism of the naked mole rat by making induced pluripotent stem cells.
Solutions for Biotherapeutic Characterization
Innovation to speed the routine.
Reclaiming The Immune System's Assault On Tumors
EPFL study shows a way to reclaim corrupted immune cells.
What Makes a Good Scientist?
It’s the journey, not just the destination that counts as a scientist when conducting research.
Body’s Own Gene Editing System Generates Leukemia Stem Cells
Inhibiting the editing enzyme may provide a new therapeutic approach for blood cancers.
Cirrhosis-Causing Cells Converted to Healthy Liver Cells in Mice
New approach that repairs liver from within may be more efficient than cell transplants.
A Boost for Regenerative Medicine
Growing tissues and organs in the lab for transplantation into patients could become easier after scientists discovered an effective way to produce three-dimensional networks of blood vessels, vital for tissue survival yet a current stumbling block in regenerative medicine.
Heart Defect Prediction Technology Could Lead to Earlier, More Informed Treatment

The Ethics of Research Biobanking
Bookmark and Share

Jan Helge Solbakk, Soren Holm and B Hofmann (Editors), publlished by Springer
ISBN: 978-0-387-93871-4

The Ethics of Research Biobanking investigates some of the ethical, legal and social challenges raised by research biobanking. In the first part of the book the authors pursue the different regulatory options envisaged within a normative terrain dictated by different conceptions and interpretations of the informed consent doctrine. In the second part a completely new approach is explored. The authors investigate the conceptual potential of different analogies outside medical research used to depict people's change and exchange of valuables between themselves and a common institution. The book is aimed at both academic and professional audiences (biobank curators, biobank researchers, ethicists, gene-epidemiologists, health law experts, philosophers, social scientists and advanced and graduate students in the relevant disciplines) as well as health and research regulators, ministries, politicians and the general public.
