  • Engineering stem cells to treat bone cancer

    Source: News Medical.Net

    Over the past decades, stem cells are being broadly used as regenerative medicine for repairing or replacing tissues that are damaged due to injury or diseases. With the advancement in stem cell therapy, scientists have now engineered stem cells that can effectively treat metastatic bone cancer without damaging surrounding normal tissues.

  • Stem cells: new insights for future regenerative medicine approaches

    Source: Stem Cells Portal

    Stem cells are considered one of the most promising tools in the field of regenerative medicine because they are a cell type that can give rise to all the cells in our bodies and that has the potential to be used to treat tissue loss due to damage or disease.

  • The true (if circuitous) path to stem cell cures

    Source: Geneng News

    Stem cells hold so much potential for regenerative medicine, it is understandable that so many people should be so impatient to see all that potential realized. But people, the desperately ill among them, need to recognize that stem cells aren’t talismans.

  • Engineered developmental signals could illuminate regenerative medicine

    Source: Phys.org

    One of the ways cells in developing organisms keep track of where they are and what they are supposed to be doing is through a type of chemical signal called a morphogen. Lim's synthetic biology team at UCSF and a pair of research groups at the Francis Crick Institute in London—led by Guillaume Salbreux, Ph.D., and Jean-Paul Vincent, Ph.D. independently took the innovative approach of engineering a synthetic morphogen from the ground up.

  • Can You Restore Your Aching Knees? New Stanford Study Shows Promise

    Source: Forbes

    Back in 2006, scientists made a major breakthrough when they discovered how to turn normal cells back into stem cells. Ever since, scientists have been exploring how to turn stem cells into just what we want them to be. To repair damaged cartilage, what we’d really like is fresh new cartilage grown from our own stem cells. This is what a new study out of Stanford University, just published in the journal Nature Medicine, promises to do.
