Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. applying human embryonic stem (ES) cell technology to the emerging field of regenerative medicine invites investors to view a video providing an overview of the Company’s technologies as well as its overall strategies to develop medical therapies for a variety of serious diseases and degenerative conditions.
In the video, William M. Caldwell IV, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Advanced Cell Technology, discusses the Company innovations relating to the field of human embryonic stem cells (hESc).
The spatial and temporal dynamics of proteins or organelles plays a crucial role in controlling various cellular processes and in development of diseases. However, acute control of activity at distinct locations within a cell cannot be achieved. A new chemo-optogenetic method enables tunable, reversible, and rapid control of activity at multiple subcellular compartments within a living cell.
Scientists have used machine learning to train computers to see parts of the cell the human eye cannot easily distinguish. Using 3D images of fluorescently labeled cells, the research team taught computers to find structures inside living cells without fluorescent labels, using only black and white images generated by an inexpensive technique known as brightfield microscopy.READ MORE
