Bioprinting, based on stem cells, will help in the assimilation of Mars

3-D tissue printing using stem cells can help keep astronauts healthy until they land on Mars. In the framework of the project of the European Space Agency (ESA) using the method of bioprinting has been received the first samples of skin and bone.

Stem cells will help to find the cause of autism

American scientists have described a previously unknown regulatory mechanism that controls the differentiation of stem cells into neurons. Impaired of this process during embryonic development, causes syndrome of fragile X-chromosome — the most common hereditary intellectual impairment in children.

New glue based on mesenchymal stem cells will help in the healing of chronic wounds

Scientists from England have developed a technology that in the future will help create a new generation of smart surgical adhesives and dressings for chronic wounds. The technique is based on changing the membranes of mesenchymal stem cells to effectively “weld” the cells together.

The new method will allow editing stem cells directly in the body.

A new study led US scientist has demonstrated the ability to edit stem cell genes not in a dish, but directly in their natural habitat. The results are important for biotechnology research and the development of therapeutic agents for the treatment of genetic diseases.

A new technique will allow to obtain a large quantities of stem cells for the treatment of blood vessels in diabetes

Researchers have developed a technology that will allow obtaining large amounts of stem cells from just a few milliliters of blood in a short time. Scientists have also found that the resulting stem cells can create new and replace damaged cells within blood vessels. This technique will help prevent a number of vascular diseases, including heart attacks, kidney disease, blindness, and amputations in people with diabetes.
