Stem cells are a class of undifferentiated cells that are able to differentiate into specialized cell types. Simply put, Stem cells are remarkable cells that can develop into any type of cell. There are three classes of stem cells ... ►Read More
Stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, promotes the reparative response of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue using stem cells or their derivatives. It is the next ... ►Read More
A common misconception is that the cells can come from aborted fetuses, which is in fact not possible. As a matter of fact, despite the amount of public attention they get, embryonic stem cells are among the smallest group of ... ►Read More
A telephone survey was carried out annually from 2002 to 2010 (except 2009) by the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). Roughly 1,000 US citizens (1,000-1,005) were polled on their opinion and support of stem cell research. An analysis of this data identified: ►Read More



GA Magzine uncovers how the RBC is creating new therapies

When they learned about a super-resolution microscope custom-made by researchers with the College of Engineering(who were located next door), the RBC provided a natural way to connect and develop pilot experiments to look at DNA sequences in a 3D structure. The level of resolution was not possible five years ago and is a major breakthrough, De La Fuente says.....It’s valuable access to a lot of people who are doing some very interesting things, and all of a sudden......►Read More


Evidence that Zika virus takes hold in the first trimester

We knew we could look at the brain structure, shape and size with MRI, but what we captured was evidence that the infection caused MRI-visible damage, and the total brain volume was substantially smaller, said Stice, faculty lead and principal investigator of the study. From this finding, our data provides...►Read More
