• The protein Matrin-3 determines the fate of neural stem cells in brain development
    A research group from Kumamoto University, Japan has discovered a new neurogenic mechanism responsible for brain development. By applying proprietary technology to detect trace proteins in living organisms, they found that a novel protein, called Matrin-3, is responsible for determining the fate of neural stem cells.

  • CRISPR halts Duchenne muscular dystrophy progression in dogs
    Scientists for the first time have used CRISPR gene editing to halt the progression of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) in a large mammal, according to a study by UT Southwestern that provides a strong indication that a lifesaving treatment may be in the pipeline.

  • Advanced maturation of human cardiac tissue grown from pluripotent stem cells
    Cardiac tissues generated from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) can serve as platforms for patient-specific studies of physiology and disease1-6. However, the predictive power of these models is presently limited by the immature state of the cells1, 2, 5, 6.

  • Neural stem cells derived directly from adipose tissue
    Neural stem cells are characterized as self-renewing cell populations with the ability to differentiate into the multiple tissue types of the central nervous system. These cells can differentiate into mature neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes.

  • Stem Cells for Skeletal Muscle Tissue Engineering
    Volumetric muscle loss (VML) is a debilitating condition wherein muscle loss overwhelms the bodys normal physiological repair mechanism. VML is particularly common among military service members who have sustained war injuries
