Adult Stem Cells Continue to Show Promise

Ethical stem cells from adult tissues make more news than embryonic stem cells. Last month, Science Magazine retold the story of “How iPS cells changed the world.” The cells promised...

No Need to Tinker With Human Embryos

of measurement, identical to embryonic stem cells (ES). ES cells have long been considered the “gold standard” of totipotency (ability to transform into any cell). Though stem cell researchers were...

A Media Bias Sampler

Tinkering with Human Embryos More Brazen than Ever

...succeed in growing stem cells into embryo-like structures, it could be difficult to determine whether the structures count as embryos, and thus are subject to the 14-day rule. “It’s an...

Life as the Communication of Information

Humans May Have Lost Beneficial Traits

...a new way to reprogram body cells into “induced multipotent stem cells” (iMS), scientists can extract fat cells and dope them with AZA, a compound known to induce cell plasticity....

Blindness Reversed with Adult Stem Cells
