FREIBURG (DE), February 2020 — Neural stem and progenitor cells (NSPCs), from the so-called subventricular zone (SVZ), can help to repair a brain damaged by central nervous system disorders.
GRONINGEN (NL), February 2020 — Scientists at the University of Groningen and the University Medical Center Groningen used molecular motors to manipulate the protein matrix on which bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells are grown.
LA JOLLA, CA (US), February 2020 —Researchers at the Salk Institute have discovered a unique pattern of DNA damage that arises in brain cells derived from individuals with a macrocephalic form of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
TEMPE, AZ (US), February 2020 — During the past decade, the gene editing tool CRISPR has transformed biology and opened up hopeful avenues to correct deadly inherited diseases.
UTRECHT (NL), January 2020 — Researchers have developed a method to grow snake venom gland cells as organoids. These lab-grown mini glands produce and secrete active toxins found in snake venom.
CAMBRIDGE, MA (US), January 2020 — When Marie Antoinette was captured during the French Revolution, her hair reportedly turned white overnight.
SYDNEY (AU), January 2020 — Researchers at the University of Sydney have used human stem cells to make pain-killing neurons that provide lasting relief in mice, without side effects, in a single treatment.
ANN ARBOR, MI (US), January 2020 — How do a couple of universally expressed proteins in stem cells and developing embryos influence an individual cell's ultimate fate — whether it ultimately becomes, for example, a retinal cell, a heart muscle cell or a stomach lining cell?
AURORA, CO (US), January 2020 — A massive research effort over more than a quarter century has tried to make personalized blood stem cells for use in treating leukemias, among many other uses.
