• 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.

  • Researchers overcome obstacle for future stem cell therapies
    Researchers have discovered a new technique that overcomes one of the major challenges of stem cell therapy.

  • Testing new drugs with ALS-on-a-chip
    There is no cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a disease that gradually kills off the motor neurons that control muscles and is diagnosed in nearly 6,000 people per year in the United States.

  • Zika virus study reveals possible causes of brain pathology
    In healthy individuals, the Zika virus causes flu-like symptoms. If a pregnant woman becomes infected, the unborn child can suffer from severe brain abnormalities as a result of mechanisms that have not yet been explained.

  • 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.
