LONDON (UK), March 2020 — A study of the second HIV patient to undergo successful stem cell transplantation from donors with a HIV-resistant gene, finds that there was no active viral infection in the patient's blood 30 months after they stopped anti-retroviral therapy, according

FARMINGTON, CT (US), March 2020 — A population of stem cells with the ability to generate new bone has been discovered by a group of researchers at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine.
WEST LAFAYETTE, IN (US), March 2020 — Pools of stem cells in the apical meristems of plants are key to continued growth and development.
STOCKHOLM (SE), March 2020 — Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have analyzed all cell types in the human ovary and found that the hotly debated so-called egg stem cells do not exist.
LEUVEN (BE), March 2020 — In the event of a bone fracture, fatty acids in our blood signal to stem cells that they have to develop into bone-forming cells. If there are no blood vessels nearby, the stem cells end up forming cartilage.
STOCKHOLM (SE), March 2020 — Our skin protects us from physical injury, radiation and microbes, and at the same time produces hair and facilitates perspiration. Details of how skin cells manage such disparate tasks have so far remained elusive.
MADISON, WI (US), March 2020 — Parkinson’s disease researchers have used gene-editing tools to introduce the disorder’s most common genetic mutation into marmoset monkey stem cells and to successfully tamp down cellular chemistry that often goes awry in Parkinson
RALEIGH, NC (US), March 2020 — A new study from North Carolina State University shows that lung stem cell secretions – specifically exosomes and secretomes – delivered via nebulizer can help repair lung injuries due to multiple types of pulmonary fibrosis in mice and rats.
LONDON (UK), February 2020 — Early-stage research in rats, by a group of scientists led by Imperial College London, revealed two existing medications that can boost the body's own repair machinery by triggering the release of stem cells from the bone marrow.
UTRECHT (NL), February 2020 — Whereas the CRISPR-Cas technology developed in 2012 cuts out a defect in a gene and replaces it with a new piece, the latest CRISPR technology works differently. The aim is to repair the error in the DNA without cutting it.
