Turning Skin Cells Into Blood Vessel Cells While Keeping Them Young

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago have identified a molecular switch that converts skin cells into cells that make up blood vessels, which could ultimately be used to repair damaged vessels in patients with heart disease or to engineer new vasculature in the lab.

Pioneering Investigators in Experimental Heart Stem Cell and Cancer Therapies Recognized


Two prominent Cedars-Sinai investigators — one leading the development of biological treatments for heart disease, the other spearheading the design and analysis of clinical trials for cancer research — were inducted April 3 into the Johns Hopkins University Society of Scholars. Eduardo Marbán, MD, PhD, and Steven Piantadosi, MD, PhD, are among a select group of medical researchers to receive the honor.

Stem Cells Help Explain Varied Genetics Behind Rare Neurologic Disease

Researchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have successfully grown stem cells from children with a devastating neurological disease to help explain how different genetic backgrounds can cause common symptoms. They identified individual and shared defects in the cells that could inform treatment efforts.

Parsley and Other Plants Lend Form to Human Stem Cell Scaffolds


Scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are using the decellularized husks of plants such as parsley, vanilla and orchids to form three-dimensional scaffolds that can then be primed and seeded with human stem cells to optimize their growth in the lab dish and, ultimately, create novel biomedical implants.

First Patient Cured of Rare Blood Disorder


Using a technique that avoids the use of high-dose chemotherapy and radiation in preparation for a stem cell transplant, physicians at the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System have documented the first cure of an adult patient with congenital dyserythropoietic anemia.
