Scientists grow diseased brain cells in bulk to study Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases

Scientists grow diseased brain cells - Jan 14

Researchers who work on neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease need to access diseased human brain cells very frequently. In that process, they create diseased human brain cells from human pluripotent stem cells in the lab. However, the main problem in the procedure is, they cannot regenerate enough diseased neurons to study the diseases […]

An algorithm that makes it easier to see stem cell development

An algorithm - Jan 05

Stanford University School of Medicine researchers invented a new algorithm, Baxter Algorithm, to track adult stem cell development more accurately. The main idea was to overcome the difficulties in treating muscle related problems that eventually lead to aging. According to the research, growing stem cells in the muscle, especially on the developed synthetic matrix, try […]

Have scientists discovered a natural way to boost muscle regeneration?

Boost muscle regeneration - Oct 18

Many athletes take painkillers regularly after intense workout sessions. The reason being, any muscle injury, inflammation, soreness, stiffness and aches can be handled with these medicines. But a new study suggests that these anti-inflammatory non-steroidal drugs often harm the muscles rather than doing any good. A Stanford Medicine study supports this view and proposes a […]

Translating great stem cell ideas into effective therapies

Translating great stem cell- 02 Jun

  CIRM’s Governing Board recently approved $15 million for four projects in translational awards program, which promises to offer support to invent novel stem cells transplants that can be applied to patients during clinical trials. Wondering what “translational” might mean in studies, involving stem cells?  “Translational” implies to researches that take the basic results of […]
