A new study from the Monell Center and collaborating institutions advances understanding of how stem cells on the tongue grow into the different types of mature taste cells that detect either sweet, salty, sour, bitter or umami.

July 3, 2017

Leukemia researchers led by John Dick, Ph.D., FRS, have traced the origins of relapse in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) to rare therapy-resistant leukemia stem cells that are already present at diagnosis and before chemotherapy begins.

A study led by scientists at Monash University has shown that a new therapy developed through stem cell technology holds promise as a treatment for chronic asthma.

June 29, 2017

Researchers have identified a unique feature of cancer stem cells that can be exploited to kill the deadly cells thought to be the reason that cancer comes back after therapy. Understanding this feature will be useful for delivering more targeted cancer therapeutics to the right patients.

June 26, 2017

Scientists used human pluripotent stem cells to generate human embryonic colons in a laboratory that function much like natural human tissues when transplanted into mice.

June 26, 2017

Compounds from grapes may kill colon cancer stem cells both in a petri dish and in mice, according to research from Penn State University.

June 23, 2017

An international team of researchers bioengineering human liver tissues uncovered previously unknown networks of genetic-molecular crosstalk that control the organ's developmental processes – greatly advancing efforts to generate healthy and usable human liver tissue from human pluripotent stem c

Researchers at the University of Twente’s Mira Research Institute have developed a chip that can capture and hold individual cells in the exact center of a minuscule hydrogel droplet. Their novel method keeps cells alive for multiple weeks, which makes it easier to study them.

June 21, 2017

New research conducted at the University of Kansas Medical Center could make treatment for gastrointestinal cancers safer — while also helping to mitigate the dangers of nuclear accidents and terrorist attacks.
