  • A protein that stem cells require could be a target in killing breast cancer cells
    For years, cancer experts have realized that cancerous cells behave in certain ways like stem cells, unspecialized cells that when exposed to certain signals, can "differentiate."

  • Organoid model systems are taking research to the next dimension
    Using the novel technology of three-dimensional (3D) “mini-organs”, termed organoids, scientists are getting closer to understanding the detailed mechanistic pathways of how stem cells form and maintain complex tissues like organs.

Lab-grown blood stem cells produced at last
After 20 years of trying, scientists have transformed mature cells into primordial blood cells that regenerate themselves and the components of blood. The work, described today in Nature, offers hope to people with leukaemia and other blood disorders who need bone-marrow transplants but can’t find a compatible donor. If the findings translate into the clinic, these patients could receive lab-grown versions of their own healthy cells.
