Department of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine
About the Department
The department’s unique courses and training programs provide a perspective on how the body’s own developmental and repair mechanisms can restore damaged cells, tissues and organs, advancing our scientific knowledge and redefining how we treat human diseases with regenerative medicine.
What I’m reading: Top picks from stem cell facultyRong Lu: In a recent issue of Nature, Fan Zhou, Bing Liu and colleagues present their work on tracing the developmental origin of blood stem cells, also known as hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), in mice. Interestingly, grafts of single HSC precursor cells from 11-day-old mouse embryos showed quite different capacities to repopulate the blood. Analysis of gene activity enabled
