Team discovers second stem cell type in mouse brain

In the brain of adult mammals, neural stem cells ensure that new nerve cells (neurons), are constantly formed. This process, known as adult neurogenesis, helps mice maintain their sense of smell. A research team led by Dr. ...

Potential new treatment for angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma

A type of blood cell cancer called angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) can develop as mutations accumulate with age in the stem cells from which the T cells in the blood develop. However, the underlying mechanism by ...

Powerful new antibody neutralizes all known SARS-CoV-2 variants

As SARS-CoV-2 has evolved and mutated, therapeutic antibodies that worked early in the pandemic have become less effective, and newer variants, especially omicron, have developed ways to evade the antibodies we make in response ...
