Sweetening the deal on bone repair

By replacing or replenishing injured tissue with biomimetic structures, scientists can help initiate stem cell-driven repair cascades throughout the body. Insights from an A*STAR-led study of the interactions between bone ...

Researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Researchers have produced stable joint cartilage from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This was made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers ...

Stem cells used to build bone and fight cancer

This year's Broad Clinical Research Fellows will apply stem cell-based approaches to two prevalent problems: non-healing bone injuries, which affect 5 million Americans each year, and neuroblastoma, the most common solid ...
