Engineered "Suicide Genes" Safely Grow Beta Cells From Stem Cells

Colony of stem cells genetically modified with a double fail-safe mechanism to control the formation of tumors and the differentiation into non-desirable cell types. Cells are stained for the stem cell markers SOX2 (green) and TRA-1-60-R (red). A nuclear marker is shown in blue. Image credit: the Diabetes Research Institute
