Stem cell breakthrough unlocks mystery of inherited heart condition

31 August 2016 | By Niamh Louise Marriott, Digital Content Producer

Using advanced stem cell technology, scientists from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have created a model of a heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), an excessive thickening of the heart that is associated with a number of rare and common illnesses, some of which have a strong…

Snake gene could hold answer to spinal cord regeneration

8 August 2016 | By Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência

Researchers from the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Portugal, have discovered that the key controller of trunk, tail and spinal development is the Oct4 gene, one of the essential regulators of stem cells. The team intend to use their data to open new avenues to the study of spinal cord regeneration...
