Carlo and the orange glasses: a children's picture book about stem cells

EuroStemCell hears from early-career researcher Vanessa de Mello about her latest creative project, a children's book about stem cells.

Eight tiny organs grown by scientists

On 20 July researchers at the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine announced that they had regrown damaged livers in mice. It’s just one example of scientists growing tiny versions of organs in animals and in the lab to study development and disease, and test potential treatments. Many of these organs also represent the first steps towards growing whole organs – or parts of organs – for transplant. MRC Science Writer Cara Steger rounds up progress.

Reflections on Stockholm: Tissue Engineering, Organ Development and Regeneration

Prospective PhD student Eilidh Livingston discusses her personal highlight - tissue engineering - from the international Society for Stem Cell Research's annual meeting in Stockholm in June this year.  Read on for a nice overview of the topic...

Stem cells in the classroom

Not many researchers go directly into schools to teach science lessons, but that’s what Professor Ian Chambers from the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine did when he teamed up with EuroStemCell science communicator Emma Kemp. They have just published an academic paper on their experience of bringing stem cell research into schools. Here’s what they learned.

Clare Blackburn awarded prize for excellence with impact

With the drive for excellence in public engagement gaining momentum in the UK over the last 5 years, the UK Research Councils have teamed up to launch  the Excellence with Impact competition. 

Evaluating the stem cell comic: Hope Beyond Hype

My degree project saw me in 2014 completing an evaluation of Hope Beyond Hype, the stem cell science comic created by EuroCtemCell. It aims to provide a clear communication from scientists to the public about the realities of stem cell science, but does it achieve this aim?

Amazing stem cell questions at Inverkeithing High School

This Stem Cell Awareness Day I joined Richard Axton and Cathy Southworth at Inverkeithing High School in Scotland to share with students the exciting world of stem cell biology and the work of being scientists. Having only just started my PhD, this was a new venture and I was intrigued to discover the thoughts and questions that hearing about the science might provoke.

Células madre del cordón umbilical: usos actuales y futuros retos

Dernière mise à jour:
19 Déc 2012

La sangre del cordón umbilical fue desechada en el pasado como material residual pero ahora es conocida por ser una fuente de células madre sanguíneas. La sangre del cordón ha sido usadas para tratar niños con ciertas enfermedades sanguíneas desde 1989 y la investigación sobre su uso para tratar adultos está haciendo muchos progresos. Así que, cuáles son los retos futuros de la investigación en sangre del cordón y cómo debería usarse ahora y en el futuro?

Stammzellen aus Nabelschnurblut: heutige Verwendung und künftige Herausforderungen

Dernière mise à jour:
19 Déc 2012

Früher entsorgte man Nabelschnurblut als Abfallmaterial, heute jedoch weiß man, dass es sich dabei um eine wertvolle Quelle für Blutstammzellen handelt. Seit 1989 behandelt man bestimmte Blutkrankheiten bei Kindern mit Nabelschnurblut und auch hinsichtlich der Verwendung bei Erwachsenen kommt die Forschung voran. Welchen Herausforderungen steht die Nabelschnurblut-Forschung also heute gegenüber und welche Verwendungsmöglichkeiten gibt es – heute und in der Zukunft?
