UCTV Launches New Stem Cell Channel

June 6, 2019

…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 everyone about it. “I’ve long felt a little selfish knowing about all this cool stuff, and not…

…used human induced pluripotent stem cells to engineer improved macrophages, ultimately resulting in a standardized, off-the-shelf therapy rather than current treatments that involve patient-specific development. Improving stem cell migration Principal investigator Ziwei Huang, PhD, professor in the Department of Medicine, and colleagues were awarded $1.1 million to develop a new…

Sugar mimics guide stem cells toward neural fate

July 30, 2014

Embryonic stem cells (left) transform into neural rosettes (right). Credit: JACS Embryonic stem cells can develop into a multitude of cells types. Researchers would like to understand how to channel that development into the specific types of mature cells that make up the organs and other structures of living organisms.…

New Biomaterial gets “Sticky” with Stem Cells

…random stickiness so that stem cells can adhere and grow into mature tissue cells. Image Credit: Adam Engler, Department of Bioengineering, UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering. Just like the bones that hold up your body, your cells have their own scaffolding that holds them up. This scaffolding, known…

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

…is that all pluripotent stem cells do not have the same capacity to regenerate,” Subramaniam said. “Identifying factors that will prime these cells for specific regeneration will go a long way in regenerative medicine.” Next, the team will explore therapeutic intervention, such as drugs, that can stimulate and accelerate muscle…

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

August 31, 2016

Researchers induce human pluripotent stem cells to differentiate into functional bone-building cells by feeding them adenosine, a naturally occurring molecule in the body. Researchers at the University of California San Diego have discovered an easy and efficient way to coax human pluripotent stem cells to regenerate bone tissue—by feeding them…
