U.K. Regulator Gives Go-Ahead For Scientists To Edit Genes In Human Embryos
A team of British scientists received approval by U.K.'s fertility regulator to edit genes in human embryos. "It is the first time a country has considered the DNA-altering technique in embryos and ap...
Stem Cell Breakthrough Could Put An End To Daily Insulin Injections For Diabetics
People with type 1 diabetes have to inject insulin daily, and it often results in pain, redness, swelling, and itching at the injection site. But this could soon be a thing of the past, thanks to a ne...
On The Road From Stem Cells to Kidney Organoids
Embryonic stem cells are undifferentiated and have the potential to become almost any type of cell in the human body. Adult stem cells on the other hand are pre-programmed genetically to already be so...
Investigators Create Complex Kidney Structures From Human Stem Cells Derived From Adults
Investigators at Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute have established a highly efficient method for making kidney structures from stem cells that are derived from skin tak...
Stem Cell Research Hints At Evolution Of Human Brain
The human cerebral cortex contains 16 billion neurons, wired together into arcane, layered circuits responsible for everything from our ability to walk and talk to our sense of nostalgia and drive to ...
UK Scientists Seek Permission To Genetically Modify Human Embryos

Engineered Hot Fat Implants Reduce Weight Gain In Mice
Scientists at UC Berkeley have developed a novel way to engineer the growth and expansion of energy-burning “good” fat, and then found that this fat helped reduce weight gain and lower blood glucose l...
Stem Cells Might Heal Damaged Lungs
Collectively, such diseases of the airways as emphysema, bronchitis, asthma and cystic fibrosis are the second leading cause of death worldwide. More than 35 million Americans alone suffer from chroni...
Hydrogels Boost Ability Of Stem Cells To Restore Eyesight And Heal Brains
Stem cells hold great therapeutic promise because of their ability to turn into any cell type in the body, including their potential to generate replacement tissues and organs. While scientists are ad...
Embryonic stem cell
Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) are pluripotent stem cells derived from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst, an early-stage preimplantation embryo. Human embryos reach the blastocyst stage 4–5 days po...

Adult stem cell
Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells, found throughout the body after development, that multiply by cell division to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues. Also known as somatic ...
Stem cell line
A stem cell line is a group of stem cells that is cultured in vitro and can be propagated indefinitely. Stem cell lines are derived from either animal or human tissues and come from one of three sourc...
Stem cell therapy
Stem cell therapy is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition. Bone marrow transplant is the most widely used stem cell therapy, but some therapies derived from umbilical cord ...
Hematopoietic stem cell
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are the blood cells that give rise to all the other blood cells and are derived from mesoderm. They are located in the red bone marrow, which is contained in the core o...
