Scientists at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston are on the forefront of stem cell research, developing novel therapies designed to generate heart cells, repair traumatic lung injuries, grow new bone and stanch the spread of cancer cells.
In an Australian first, UNSW researchers have developed three clones of cells from existing human embryonic stem cells. The breakthrough could lead to new treatments for conditions such as diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and spinal cord injury.
Leaders in translational stem cell research from across the country and around the world will present findings on how advances in stem cell science lead to better treatments and cures to disease and injury at The New York Stem Cell Foundation's Seventh Annual Translational Stem Cell Research Conference, held at The Rockefeller University in Manhattan on October 10-11.
As the finale of the ESTOOLS project, the consortium partners are holding a major 2-day International Scientific Symposium, and the final Ethics Workshop.
Stem cells offer great potential in biomedical engineering due to their pluripotency, which is the ability to multiply indefinitely and also to differentiate and develop into any kind of the hundreds of different cells and bodily tissues. But the precise complexity of how stem cell development is regulated throughout states of cellular change has been difficult to pinpoint until now.
Virginia Commonwealth University on Wednesday, Oct. 13, will release the results of its annual nationwide survey of Americans’ attitudes toward stem-cell research, cloning and other scientific and medical advances in technology.
Though there has been considerable biological and political debate over the use of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) vs. adult stem cells (ASCs) as therapies for tissue engineering and organ transplants, inherent benefits and drawbacks in both techniques compel them to coexist and complement each other.
Frontier Lifeline Hospital (FLL) has been already involved in cardiac stem cell therapy post the approval by Clinical Trial registry of India, Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) in 2010...
