Scientists get the green light to resurrect the dead with stem cells
(Minds) Bioquark, a biotech company based in the United States, has been given the go-ahead to begin research on 20 brain-dead patients, in an attempt to stimulate and regrow neurons and, literally, bring the patients back from the dead.

The Hallmarks of Aging

The Hallmarks of Aging
Aging is characterized by a progressive loss of physiological integrity, leading to impaired function and increased vulnerability to death. This deterioration is the primary risk factor for major human pathologies, including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases. Aging research has experienced an unprecedented advance over recent years, particularly with the discovery that the rate of aging is controlled, at least to some extent, by genetic pathways and bioch...

Wound healing: The stem cell dynamic

posted on
One of the key questions in biology is to identify how tissues are repaired after trauma and understand how stem cells migrate, proliferate, and differentiate to repair tissue damage. Researchers define, for the first time, the changes in the stem cell dynamics that contribute to wound healing.

Popular stem cell techniques deemed safe; unlikely to pass on cancer-causing mutations
A new study led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) shows that the act of creating pluripotent stem cells for clinical use is unlikely to pass on cancer-causing mutations to patients.

Scientists have figured out why drug-resistant 'superbugs' are so hard to kill
You may have already heard about the growing problem caused by antibiotic resistance - the spread of superbugs that have evolved to become resistant to the antibiotics we usually attack them with. It's an issue that could have very serious implications for global health and disease if it isn't tackled urgently, and now researchers have made an important step in finding a solution.

Science shows that fat cells live longer than lean ones
For the first time, scientists have discovered a connection between a cell's fat content and its lifespan, which could explain the 'obesity paradox' that's been puzzling scientists for decades: why obese people have the lowest all-cause mortality rates, whereas the rate for those who are fit and lean is higher.

Researchers dig up new molecular details on 'the other type' of stem cells
Scientists reveal that the combination of two molecular signals determines which cells that have already differentiated can regain their stem cell properties.
