Much like planning a road trip, reprogramming human stem cells relies on developing a list of sequential actions, or a “roadmap” of sorts, after which it is little more complicated than following the prescribed directions. Without an accurate roadmap for the human stem cells, however, researchers at University of California, Los Angeles had to develop their own.Read More
Everyone who has ever sliced their finger instead of a vegetable or received a nasty paper cut knows that a skin infection can tend to make things a whole lot worse. Until recently, the absence of an infection was thought to rely solely on the activity of white blood cells (and the availability of anti-bacterial ointment). However, the skin could be getting a little healing help from fat cells, according to scientists at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. Researchers at UCSD, led by Richard Gallo, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chief of dermatology, say that fat cells below the skin help protect us from bacteria by producing antimicrobial peptides that help fend off invading bacteria and other pathogens.Read More
