New technologies allow to increase the number of umbilical cord blood stem cells

US scientists from the Stowers Institute for Medical Research have discovered a new method that will allow the generation of mature stem cells from human umbilical cord blood. The results of this study, which were published in Cell Research, will make these cells more accessible for the treatment of blood diseases, the immune system and similar diseases in patients who cannot take bone marrow transplantation.

The main regulator of muscle formation from stem cells was opened

Japanese scientists from the University of Tsukuba identified the transcription factor Tbx6, which plays a crucial role in the formation of the heart and skeleton muscles from stem cells. The results of the work were published on August 9, 2018 in Cell Stem Cell. Read more

Found a regulator of the production of stem cells in the brain

Scientists from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine showed that the mossy cells in the hippocampus regulate the production of new neurons from stem cells. The results of a study, published in the journal Neuron, can shed light on the causes of neurological diseases and help in the creation of effective treatments. Read more

Individual bone grafts are created from stem cells

Scientists from New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute have developed a new method of bone tissue repair called Segmental Additive Tissue Engineering (SATE).

Mature cells can be converted into stem cells without genetic modification

Recent research conducted by Professor G.V. Shivashankar from Singapore, showed that mature cells can be reprogrammed into stem cells without direct genetic modification, but only by limiting the space in which they are divided. The findings are published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
