$8M Research Grant Awarded to UAB, Duke, & UW Collaborative Study

Posted by Emily Olson on Wed, Sep 28, 2016

The $8M grant, given by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, will support a project in which the research team will use bioengineered stem cells and tissue to create a functional heart patch. The patch will restore function and prevent heart failure that can be caused by a heart attack's damage.

Studying Stem Cell Development at Rockefeller University

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Feb 02, 2016

Gaining a new understanding of stem cell development at NY's Rockefeller University.

Updated 12/8/2016, originally posted by Laura Braden 2/2/16

Understanding what stem cells do and why they are important has been a popular research topic for many years. Scientists have learned quite a bit about their functions, such as repairing damaged tissues and renewing some normal ones. However, there is no knowledge of where these stem cells originate and how they develop in the embryo.

UCSD Creates Efficient Model for Generating Human Stem Cells

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Fri, Aug 02, 2013

Funded in part by grants from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine and the NIH, researchers at the University of California, San Diego have come up with a simple, easily repeated RNA-based technique of generating human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The study was published in the August 1st edition of Cell Stem Cell. The researchers’ method has wide-ranging applications for others searching for new cell therapies and use in other stem cell studies.
