Mechanically Stimulating Stem Cells
MIT biological engineering graduate student Frances Liu is studying ways to alter mechanical properties of cell environments to produce desired chemical outputs.
Molecule Controls Stem Cell Plasticity By Boosting Gene Expression
Sox9 appears to lead the activation of super-enhancers that boost genes associated with stem cell plasticity.
Stem Cells Show Promise For Reversing Type 2 Diabetes
Scientists at the University of British Columbia and BetaLogics, have shown for the first time that Type 2 diabetes can be effectively treated with a combination of specially-cultured stem cells and conventional diabetes drugs.
A Single-Cell Breakthrough
UNC School of Medicine scientist Scott Magness and collaborators use their newly developed technology to dissect properties of single stem cells. The advancement will allow researchers to study gastrointestinal disorders and cancers like never before.
