Old mice regain leg strength after antibody treatment, Stanford Medicine researchers find
Old muscle stem cells express high levels of the cancer-associated molecule CD47. Blocking a pathway mediated by CD47 restored strength to old mice in a Stanford Medicine study.
Stanford Medicine researchers take early, critical step toward growing organs
Researchers have shown initial viability of an embryo that contains both chimpanzee and macaque cells in a preliminary study that explores the feasibility of primate organ genesis.
Ketogenic diet helps mouse muscle stem cells survive stress, Stanford-led study says
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.
Electrically stimulated stem cells aid stroke recovery in rodents, Stanford researchers find
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.
