What’s Up with Stem Cells?

iPSCs “hold great promise in regenerative medicine, personalized medicine and drug discovery… while avoiding the ethical controversies associated with embryonic stem cells”. Embryonic Stem Cells Editor Note: These are the...

Biological Designs Worth Imitating

...stem cells to grow where you want them is a challenge. Phys.org explains how some scientists are succeeding with plant materials. In the process, the scientists make a good statement...

Tick Talk: Mammal Blood Found in Amber

...Preserved Red Blood Cells (Tia Ghose in Live Science): “A blood-engorged tick that was trapped in amber at least 20 million years ago contained perfectly preserved red blood cells, likely...

Stem Cell Headlines

embryos is ethically troublesome. Adult stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) offer ethical workarounds for embryonic stem cells in most cases. Here’s what’s developing on the stem cell...

Stem Cell Digest

In conclusion, CMMPs act as ‘synthetic stem cells’ which mimic the paracrine and biointerfacing activities of natural stem cells in therapeutic cardiac regeneration. Small RNA-directed epigenetic programming of embryonic stem...

Oldest Dinosaur Blood Reported

...were probably derived from the iron rich blood cells of the living dinosaur, and would have provided the internal environment for the preservation of collagen. Lacunae, where adult bone cells...

Adult Stem Cells Eliminate Need for Embryo Killing

researchers are trying to coax embryonic stem cells to have the “totipotent” properties of a zygote. While mentioning induced pluripotent stem cells as an alternative to embryonic cells, the article...

Scientists Paranoid about Losing Access to Baby Body Parts

...that this attack will be renewed. We Want Our Embryonic Stem Cells! Speaking of embryonic stem cells, Nature‘s Editors never stopped lusting for those, either, even though ethically-safe induced pluripotent...

Big Science Leans Pro-Death

...back the clock.” Yes, let us all make progress toward the death of personhood! But why even play with ESC’s (embryonic stem cells) when adult cells can be induced back...

Year-End Biomimetics Parade
