May 8, 2017

A team of researchers at the University of Gothenburg’s Sahlgrenska Academy has managed to generate cartilage tissue by printing stem cells using a 3D bioprinter. The fact that the stem cells survived being printed in this manner is a success in itself.

May 3, 2017

A gene previously identified as critical for tumor growth in many human cancers also maintains intestinal stem cells and encourages the growth of cells that support them, according to results of a study led by Johns Hopkins researchers.

May 3, 2017

Scientists and collaborators have shed light on a longstanding question about what leads to variation in stem cells by comparing induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) derived from identical twins.

May 1, 2017

Regenerative medicine using human pluripotent stem cells to grow transplantable tissue outside the body carries the promise to treat a range of intractable disorders, such as diabetes and Parkinson’s disease.

May 1, 2017

Using new gene-editing technology, researchers have rewired mouse stem cells to fight inflammation caused by arthritis and other chronic conditions.

April 26, 2017

An international team of researchers believe they may have found a way to prevent graft-versus-host disease after stem cell transplants, while retaining the transplants' positive effects on fighting leukemia and lymphoma.

April 24, 2017

Accelerated healing isn't just for superheroes. A new study suggests a way that mere mortals can potentially speed their recovery from a wide variety of injuries.

April 24, 2017

A team led by Tsinghua University professor Kekhooi Kee, Ph.D., is researching how gravity affects the development of human embryonic stem cells in space.

April 19, 2017

Scientists at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) of the University of Luxembourg have succeeded in turning human stem cells derived from skin samples into tiny, three-dimensional brain-like cultures that behave very similarly to cells in the human midbrain.

April 19, 2017

Researchers have uncovered a mechanism through which a mutation in the STAT3 gene leads to a disorder in the development of the pancreas and to infant diabetes.
