Reprogramming stem cells to heal disease

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

At one point, Shinya Yamanaka, M.D., Ph.D., was so down and discouraged that he almost gave up his research into embryonic cells and their powerful potential to replace diseased cells. He was finding little interest among colleagues; funding was hard to come by; and research journals rejected his studies. Then, discovery of human embryonic cell […]

Reimagining stem cell cultivation

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic has discovered how to microencapsulate pluripotent stem cells to potentially make them easier and less expensive to process and more effective for fighting disease. This research by Alexander Revzin, Ph.D., a Mayo Clinic biomedical engineer, is published in Bioactive Materials. “Human pluripotent stem cells hold considerable promise as a source of adult cellsfor […]
