Induced pluripotent stem cells share proteins with some cancers. The cells can be used as a vaccine to prevent pancreatic cancers in mice.
Stanford stem cell biologists have found a way to block a signal that causes growth of breast cancer cells, opening potential for new treatments.
An innovative stem cell delivery method vastly improves the viability of tissue regenerating cells in animal spinal-cord injury models.
This "In the Spotlight" features Carolyn Dundes, a PhD candidate in Stanford's Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine program and an LGBTQ advocate.
Stanford researchers study stem-cell-derived human heart muscle cells on the International Space Station to learn effects of microgravity.
Stanford scientists have conducted a proof-of-concept experiment in mice that shows they can use blood stem cells to treat a severe brain disease.
A method that broadens the pool of potential donors for stem cell transplants recently saved two young brothers from a severe genetic disease.
A state-of-the-field review of stem cell research by Stanford's Helen Blau reveals their promise & exposes problems in the path to clinical applications.
This In the Spotlight features Kyle Loh, a stem cell researcher who is working to create pure populations of cells. He also enjoys road bicycling.
A team of researchers have found a new way to remove blood-producing stem cells, introducing the possibility of safer, and non-matched, transplants.
Honeybee royal jelly affects the developmental potential of mouse stem cells. A structurally similar protein in mammals could aid stem cell research.
Is extensive regeneration possible in humans? Stanford researchers show skeletal stem cells can move backward developmentally when major repairs are needed.
Stanford scientists identified two key genes responsible for the rapid bone growth of deer antlers, a finding that may one day help treat bone disease.
'Mitotic catastrophe' hampers the ability of aged muscle stem cells to repair damage. Manipulating this process could lead to new therapies for old muscle.
Discovery of the human skeletal stem cell opens the way to regenerate cartilage and bone to repair damaged tissues, say Stanford scientists.
