Human blood cells can be directly reprogrammed into neural stem cells
Scientists have succeeded for the first time in directly reprogramming human blood cells into a previously unknown type of neural stem cell. These induced stem cells are similar to those that occur during the early embryonic development of the central nervous system.

Investigators study how a protein factor contributes to cancer cell migration
UCLA researchers have discovered a new protein factor that contributes to a fibroblast cells ability to migrate to a wound and participate in its healing process. The studys results could help scientists prevent cancer cells from using the same mechanisms to move throughout the body and spread.
