  • USC Stem Cell and the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center accelerate drug discovery

    Three teams of USC stem cell researchers have won a coveted prize — the opportunity to test 3,000 drug candidates or chemicals for the potential to help patients. Two teams will focus their efforts on cancer, and the third team will search for ways to accelerate the healing of large bone fractures. The free screens will take place at the new Choi Family Therapeutic Screening Facility, part of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC.

  • Keck Medicine of USC scientists discover immune system component that resists sepsis in mice

    Molecular microbiologists from the Keck School of Medicine of USC have discovered that mice lacking a specific component of the immune system are completely resistant to sepsis, a potentially fatal complication of infection. The discovery suggests that blocking this immune system component may help reduce inflammation in human autoimmune and hyper-inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Type 2 diabetes.

  • Andy McMahon and USC Stem Cell: From discoveries to cures

    How do fingers become fingers and not toes? How does the brain generate the correct number of neurons? How do the kidneys branch into the complex and elegant structure that filters the blood and regulates its pressure? Renowned biologist Andy McMahon, PhD, FRS, spent decades unlocking these and other mysteries of embryonic development by identifying the role of key regulatory genes. By the time he decided to leave Harvard University for USC, he was ready to take on a new challenge: finding cures for patients with kidney disease.

  • Fasting triggers stem cell regeneration of damaged old immune system

    In the first evidence of a natural intervention triggering stem cell-based regeneration of an organ or system, a study in the June 5 issue of Cell Stem Cell shows that cycles of prolonged fasting not only protect against immune system damage — a major side effect of chemotherapy — but also induce immune system regeneration, shifting stem cells from a dormant state to a state of self-renewal.
