Engineering stem cells to treat liver disease

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

During clinical rotations in medical school, Kianna Nguyen encountered many patients with liver failure and was struck by a grim reality: Their only hope was a transplant. The shortage of donor organs and therapeutic options was at once frustrating and inspirational, triggering her research interest in cellular therapies for liver failure. “Research provides us with […]

What’s behind patient requests for stem cells?

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

In one of the first studies of its kind, Mayo Clinic analyzed a large group of patients to understand their motivations for seeking stem cell therapies and whether expectations are grounded in science. The findings could help health care professionals cut through misleading claims and better counsel patients. This research by Jennifer Arthurs; Zubin Master, […]

A discovery step toward cell replacement therapy for diabetes

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

In what could be a step toward cell replacement therapy for diabetes, Mayo Clinic researchers have discovered how to manufacture cells capable of generating a hormone that regulates low blood sugar. Quinn Peterson, Ph.D. and his team have developed a new method of mass producing a cell product containing the hormone glucagon that is capable […]
