3 things to consider before preserving your stem cells

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

The proliferating stem cell banking industry is built on a riveting concept: Preserve stem cells while they’re most potent until they are needed later in life to potentially fight disease. What started out as a market for banking stem cells from a baby’s umbilical cord blood and tissue is mushrooming into an industry that now […]

3D brain models advance Alzheimer’s disease research at Mayo Clinic

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

A 3D model of brain organoids — “a minibrain in a dish” — mimics human brain structure and provides a new scientific strategy for exploring the pathology of Alzheimer’s disease, Mayo Clinic research discovered. The study, which was published in Nature Communications, finds that the minibrain — an induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cerebral organoid 3D […]
