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.

San Diego Bioresearch Targets Tumors with Shapeshifting Nanoparticles

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, May 31, 2013

One of the reasons cancer is so successful and difficult to treat is that it uses the body's own systems to proliferate, thrive, and hide from attack. Bioresearch scientists out to target cancer are taking a similar approach, building tiny bio-vehicles for locating tumors that reach their destination without setting off a massive immune system alarm or flooding the whole body with toxic chemicals. A team of biochemists at the University of California San Diego led by Dr. Nathan Gianneschi has developed a nanoparticle that assumes a benign shape to travel covertly through the blood system, then, recognizing a tumor, reassembles via an enzymatic cue into a net to attach itself to the cancerous target.
