New Stem Cell Discoveries at Harvard

Posted by David Larsen on Wed, Mar 25, 2015


Hypothalamic neurons orchestrate many essential physiological and behavioral processes via secreted neuropeptides, and are relevant to human diseases such as obesity, narcolepsy and infertility. A recent collaboration of scientists from New York, Toronto, and Tokyo, and Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) researchers have devised two methods for using stem cells to generate the type of neurons that help regulate behavioral and basic physiological functions in the human bodysuch as obesity and hypertension, as well as sleep, mood, and some social disorders.

Life Science Funding Worth $3.5M Awarded to Harvard University

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Oct 14, 2013

Researchers at Harvard University’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering recently received $3.5 million in life science funding from the NIH. The grant is called a Transformative Research Award. The NIH’s aim in creating this grant is to fund high-risk, high-reward research. According to News Medical, the NIH funded only 10 of these projects in 2013, one of which is Harvard University’s DNA-based microscopy method of viewing cells.

Harvard Researchers Identify SALL4 Cancer Gene Inhibitor

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Jul 15, 2013

Science researchers at Harvard University have discovered a gene found in the most devastating forms of cancer that controls embryonic stem cell self-renewal. The gene, SALL4, enables stem cells to keep dividing rather than grow into mature cells. The gene is re-expressed in almost all cases of acute myeloid leukemia and between 10 to 30 percent of lung, ovarian, gastric, liver, breast and endometrial cancer. Researchers say they can make a strong case that the gene plays a part in tumor formation. The breakthrough marks the beginning of a search for a drug that can block the gene’s activity.
