Tackling Differentiated Stem Cell Production

Tackling Differentiated Stem Cell Production

Part of the fascinating potential of stem cells is their ability to provide replacement cells and tissues to treat diseases. In order to do this most effectively, scientists need to be able to create differentiated cells quickly and accurately.

The ethics of changing genes in the embryo

From the moment we began to unlock the secrets of the genome, the complete set of DNA including all genes and understand the effects that genes can have on human health, the idea of modifying the human genome – and hence controlling these effects – has held both promise and peril. Visions of a bright future free from the sufferings of genetic disease contrast starkly with darker fears of a genetically-engineered ‘Brave New World’. 

Unfolding Organogenesis

Through organ origami and paper hearts, Karen Jent reflects on the event, Unfolding Organogenesis, at this year's Edinburgh International Science Festival. 

Huntington’s disease: how could stem cells help?

Zuletzt aktualisiert:

Huntington’s disease is a devastating, hereditary neurodegenerative disease affecting about 5 out of every 100,000 people in the USA, Europe and Australia. It typically causes involuntary movements of the face and body and dementia. Symptoms worsen over time, eventually leaving the affected person totally dependent on help from others. There are no effective therapies available today. How might stem cell research lead to new treatments?
