UCTV Launches New Stem Cell Channel

June 6, 2019

…Medicine UCTV Launches New Stem Cell Channel Viewers to go behind the scenes from autism to zebrafish Alysson R. Muotri loves stem cells. He runs a lab that studies them, and he’s inspired by the fascinating work colleagues around him are doing. He’s so excited that he wants to tell…

Researchers Use a Single Molecule to Command Stem Cells to Build New Bone

August 31, 2016

…an easy and efficient way to coax human pluripotent stem cells to regenerate bone tissue—by feeding them adenosine, a naturally occurring molecule in the body. The stem-cell-derived bone tissue helped repair cranial bone defects in mice without developing tumors or causing infection.

Stem Cell Therapy Rescues Symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease

August 9, 2023

Promising preclinical results from UC San Diego show hematopoietic stem cell therapy was effective in rescuing memory loss, neuroinflammation and beta amyloid build-up in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease.

The Coming of Age of Stem Cell Therapy

October 30, 2014

…Coming of Age of Stem Cell Therapy Photos by Erik Jepsen/UC San Diego Publications With first clinical trials, UC San Diego pushes stem cell therapies into a new era of real-world application In 2004, the therapeutic potential of stem cells persuaded more than 7 million Californians to approve Proposition 71,…

State Stem Cell Agency Funds Three New UC San Diego Projects

August 25, 2021

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine has approved a trio of awards, totaling approximately $4 million, to UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers to advance studies of new stem cell-based treatments for multiple types of cancer and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

UC San Diego Awarded $8M to Expand Stem Cell Therapy Clinical Trials

November 21, 2022

UC San Diego Alpha Stem Cell Clinic awarded $8M to expand clinical trials of novel stem cell therapies. The CIRM award will advance partnerships between academic and industry experts in San Diego to expedite clinical trials for patients with difficult-to-treat diseases.

UC San Diego Sanford Stem Cell Institute Launches Stem Cells Into Space

November 22, 2022

The UC San Diego Sanford Stem Cell Institute leads its first space launch, sending stem cells into space aboard the International Space Station. The NASA-partnered study will take advantage of the microgravity environment of space to study accelerated aging in stem cells.

Bioengineers: Matrix Stiffness is an Essential Tool in Stem Cell Differentiation

August 12, 2014

…it comes to guiding stem cells into a specific cell type, the stiffness of the extracellular matrix used to culture them really does matter. When placed in a dish of a very stiff material, or hydrogel, most stem cells become bone-like cells. By comparison, soft materials tend to steer stem…

How to Speed Up Muscle Repair

March 17, 2021

By studying how different pluripotent stem cell lines build muscle, researchers have for the first time discovered how epigenetic mechanisms can be triggered to accelerate muscle cell growth, providing new insights for developing therapies for muscle disease, injury and atrophy.

Finding Cures for Devastating Diseases

August 2, 2012

…Medicine, a new, state-of-the-art stem cell research facility dedicated to research and finding cures and therapies for some of society’s most devastating diseases. This new “collaboratory” brings together UC San Diego’s research partners on the mesa in a way that allows for unique collaborations that otherwise may not be possible.…
