Einstein’s 2017 Stem Cell Symposium Spotlights Epigenetics and Metabolism

paul-frenette-wide-angle.jpg

On Monday, April 24, the Ruth L. and David S. Gottesman Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine will host its third Stem Cell Symposium, focusing on the importance of cell metabolism and epigenetics. Leading scientists from the U.S., Japan and Germany will present their latest research and describe the hurdles to translating new finding into therapeutics.

LJI Professor Klaus Ley Wins Prestigious National Award

LeyKlaus.png

Professor Klaus Ley, M.D., has been selected as this year’s winner of the Eugene M. Landis Award, the Microcirculatory Society’s top honor, in recognition of his pioneering work in vascular biology and microcirculation. The microcirculation comprises all the small blood vessels in all tissues and organs and their contents (blood plasma and blood cells).

Altered Immune Cells May Both Contribute to Preeclampsia and Offer New Hope for Treatment

In a new study presented today at the APS annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2017, researchers have found that the immune system’s natural killer (NK) cells activate and change in response to placental ischemia. Disrupting these altered cells seems to blunt some of the dangerous complications of the condition, including high blood pressure (hypertension) and inflammation in the mother and growth restriction in the fetus.

In Experiments on Earth, Testing Possible Building Blocks of Alien Life

Extraterrestrial life, if it exists, could use different amino acid building blocks than living things here on Earth. To better understand what alien life might look like, researchers are studying which amino acids stand up to the types of extreme conditions found on other planets and moons.
