The loss of retinal light-sensing photoreceptor cells is a leading cause of blindness and the number of individuals affected by retinal degenerative diseases is increasing with an ageing population. Currently, there are no treatments for these diseases and progress in finding new treatments is slow. This article explores the potential…
An area where stem cell biology and medicine are combining effectively is the establishment of new cell therapies. However, current therapies are limited to a narrow set of cell types that can be isolated or created and expanded in vitro. Dr Owen Rackham discusses how utilising computational approaches will further…
Induced pluripotent stem cells made to produce insulin and CRISPR, used to correct a genetic defect, cured Wolfram syndrome in mice.
Drug Target Review explores the latest applications of stem cells in modelling disease, drug production and the most recent steps in regenerative medicine provided by research.
Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have been administered to mice with neuropathic pain to provide lasting relief with no side effects.
Researchers investigating childhood leukaemia have discovered that increasing MLL gene expression in iPSCs drives hematopoietic stem cell production, so could be the target of new therapies.
Researchers have developed a 'scar in a dish' model derived from human stem cells which mimics the progressive scarring that occurs in human organs and has lead to a drug candidate being identified to stop the progression of fibrosis.
Researchers have used machine learning to predict the conditions needed for stem cells to develop a certain way, which could be used to grow 3D organ models.

Ncardia, will discuss the application of human iPSC-derived cell-based assays and high throughput screening for drug discovery and development.
Scientists have been able to grow human oesophagal tissue entirely from pluripotent stem cells (PSCs), which can form any tissue type in the body...
Stem cells transformed into 3D human liver tissue by scientists show promising support of liver function when implanted into mice with a liver disease...
Researchers have now for the first time succeeded in converting skin cells into pluripotent stem cells by activating the cell's own genes...
Scientists may now be able to predict whether carrying a specific genetic variant increases a person's risk for disease using gene editing and stem cell technologies...
Expert view: It’s an exciting time for the use of stem cells in research and the treatment of human disease
The Nobel Prize-winning observations and discoveries of John B. Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka have ignited an explosion of excitement around the potential use of stem cells in research and treatment of human disease.
