The company's lead stem cell
therapy, ReN001 for chronic stroke disability, is in late pre-clinical development.
To tease out additional molecular details, Boyer's group plans to perturb the proteins and genes underlying stem cell
behavior and to observe how the cells respond.
This funding opportunity is intended to promote research on all aspects of tumor stem cell
biology, and on the genes and proteins responsible for the tumor stem cell
transplants may simply be masking the symptoms just like L-Dopa.
This process resulted in the differentiation of a population of cells that expressed markers characteristic of hair cells, illustrating how embryonic stem cells
can be differentiated into hair cells in a stepwise fashion (figure 3).
Nancy Reagan has long been an advocate of embryonic stem cell
Cloning is difficult--Hwang's team created only one stem cell
line from more than 200 eggs.
By all accounts Kass and the council members diligently and capably considered the issues before them, concluding by a slim majority that stem cell
research should proceed, albeit with strict regulation.
Grades 5-8: * science, technology, and society * controversy over stem cell
Micheline MathewsRoth, associate professor at Harvard Medical School, put it well:" It's crucial for people to realize that the only way to get embryonic stem cells
is literally to tear apart living human embryos".
One day it may be possible to take any adult stem cell
back to the embryonic, and hence protean, stage.
Our 3-D technology has numerous applications that we intend to develop with Stem Cell
and other companies.
