Lab-Developed Intestinal Organoids Form Mature Human Tissue in Mice

(Eurekalert) – Researchers have successfully transplanted “organoids” of functioning human intestinal tissue grown from pluripotent stem cells in a lab dish into mice – creating an unprecedented model for studying diseases of the intestine. Reporting their results Oct. 19 online … Read More

New Insight That ‘Mega’ Cells Control the Growth of Blood-Producing Cells

(Medical Xpress) – While megakaryocytes are best known for producing platelets that heal wounds, these “mega” cells found in bone marrow also play a critical role in regulating stem cells according to new research from the Stowers Institute for Medical … Read More

HSCI Lab Explores More Efficient Ways to Generate iPS Cells

(Harvard Stem Cell Institute) – Harvard Stem Cell Institute scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital have found that adding two small molecules to the four classic “Yamanaka factors” generates the fastest mouse induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells ever reported. This simple tweak … Read More

Scietists Identify “Naive-like” Human Stem Cell

( – The human embryonic stem cells (ESCs) that scientists currently study in the lab are able to develop into several different types of cell but are already pre-determined to some extent. Published in the top scientific journal Nature, researchers … Read More
