Cellular “glue” to regenerate tissue, heal wounds, regrow nerves

Researchers at UC San Francisco (UCSF) have developed molecules that act like “cell glue”, allowing them to precisely direct how cells bind to each other. This discovery represents a major step towards the construction of tissues and organs, a goal long sought after by regenerative medicine. Adhesive molecules are found naturally throughout the body, holding …

In a world first, an Israeli laboratory extracts male and female stem cells from the same person

In a world first, Israeli scientists have obtained male and female stem cells from the same person. The researchers say they have successfully grown nervous system cells from the stem cells, with genetically identical male and female versions. They note that the cells of the nervous system are a proof of concept, stating that they …
