Developing Stem Cell Therapy Solutions for Liver Disease

Blog

We spoke with Eric Schuur, President and CEO of HepaTx, to learn how the company hopes to develop regenerative medicine solutions for people with liver disease. Eric provides an overview of the steps involved in hepatocyte production and provides insights on the hurdles that need to be overcome, to get these stem cells from the lab to the clinic.

PromethION in action, in labs around the world

Video

The PromethION is Oxford Nanopore Technologies' largest sequencing device, capable of delivering many terabases of data, in real time, from a single run. Hear how teams across a broad range of applications, based in labs all over the world — US (UCSF, UCD, JCVI and UCSC), China (GrandOmics and Biomarker) and Europe (KeyGene, Genescope and UMC Utrecht) — are using PromethION in their work.

Through the Looking Glass of Single Cell Proteomics
Article

To pick apart the differences between individual cells in complex multicellular organisms, we need to look at cells one-by-one. This article takes a look at how several scientists in North America are using single cell proteomics (SCP) technologies to discern disease pathogenesis and enhance directed stem-cell differentiation.
