Muscle stem cells enter a deep resting state during fasting or when fed a high-fat ketogenic diet, a Stanford-led study finds. This promotes stem cell resilience but slows injury repair.
Stanford scientists have developed a device that delivers and electrically stimulates stem cells to promote stroke healing.
Researcher awarded $12 million for a stem cell trial to improve outcomes of young blood cancer patients
Stanford researcher Maria Grazia Roncarolo has been awarded $12 million by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine for a trial aimed at improving the outcomes of stem cell transplants in children and young adults with blood cancers.
The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine has awarded $31 million to three Stanford researchers to launch trials of treatments for common diseases. Four other Stanford researchers also received a total of $4.55 million.
Researchers have found that old skeletal stem cells contribute to bone fragility and poor healing in mice, but that a stem cell-boosting gel may help restore function.
