Stem Cells in Acid Wash Yield New Results

Stem Cells in Acid Wash Yield New Results

According to two papers published Wednesday by the journal Nature, stem cells washed in acid have begun to yield surprising new results. Dr. Charles Vacanti of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, along with his Japanese research team, claim that exposing cells to a more stressful environment than they are used to allows cells to reprogram themselves as opposed to […]

Stem Cells Mimic Embryo Cells, Change Future of Cloning [Video]

Stem Cells Mimic Embryo Cells, Change Future of Cloning [Video]

Stem cells that are put under stress actually mimic embryonic cells, a new study shows. Creating these cells in a lab, rather than using human embryos, can certainly change the future of cloning. Being able to clone without the use of human embryos removes the ethical debate associated with the procedure. The work of Japanese […]
