CIRM Approves $5.8 Million Grant for CAR-T Therapy That Targets Cancer Stem Cells

tlymphocyte_niaid_cirm.jpg

The Independent Citizens Oversight Committee of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) today unanimously approved a $5.8 million award to University of California San Diego School of Medicine researchers to develop a new immunotherapy in which patients’ cells would be equipped with a special receptor that recognizes and targets cancer stem cells, whose survival abilities often render standard therapies ineffective or short-term.

Stem-Cell Researchers Solve Mystery of Relapse in Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Leukemia researchers led by Dr. John Dick have traced the origins of relapse in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) to rare therapy-resistant leukemia stem cells that are already present at diagnosis and before chemotherapy begins.

A discovery, described in a recent study by researchers at Beaumont Health, revealed ACL tears send a signal to stem cells throughout our body. This could lead to future breakthroughs to enable stem cells to repair injuries and reduce development of conditions like osteoarthritis.

Bitter or Sweet? How Taste Cells Decide What They Want to Be

Jiang2012bcrop.jpg

A new study from the Monell Center and collaborating institutions advances understanding of how stem cells on the tongue grow into the different types of mature taste cells that detect either sweet, salty, sour, bitter, or umami. The findings may someday allow scientists to treat taste disorders, characterize new taste qualities, or even fine-tune a person’s taste perception to encourage healthier eating.
