• Japanese team creates human oogonia using human stem cells in artificial mouse ovaries
    A team of researchers with members from several institutions in Japan has successfully generated human oogonia inside of artificial mouse ovaries using human stem cells. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group describes their work and their plans for the future.

  • Researchers identify human skeletal stem cells
    Human skeletal stem cells that become bone, cartilage, or stroma cells have been isolated from fetal and adult bones. This is the first time that skeletal stem cells, which had been observed in rodent models, have been identified in humans. The researchers were also able to derive the skeletal stem cells from human induced pluripotent stem cells, opening up new therapeutic possibilities. The discovery appears September 20 in the journal Cell.

  • Scientists grow human esophagus in lab
    This confocal microscopic image shows a two-month-old human esophageal organoid bioengineered by scientists from pluripotent stem cells. About 700 micrometers (0.027 inches) in size, the organoid is stained to visualize key structural …more

  • Creating custom brains from the ground up
    Scientists studying how genetics impact brain disease have long sought a better experimental model. Cultures of genetically-modified cell lines can reveal some clues to how certain genes influence the development of psychiatric disorders and brain cancers. But such models cannot offer the true-to-form look at brain function that can be provided by genetically-modified mice.

  • Diversity in the brain—how millions of neurons become unique
    How is it possible that so many different and highly specific neuron types arise in the brain? A mathematical model developed by researchers from the University of Basels Biozentrum demonstrates that different variants of genes enable such a random diversity.
