Super Resolution Imaging Helps Determine a Stem Cell’s Future

StemCellsRU-PressReleaseFigure_170124.jpg

Scientists at Rutgers and other universities have created a new way to identify the state and fate of stem cells earlier than previously possible. Understanding a stem cell’s fate – the type of cell it will eventually become – and how far along it is in the process of development can help scientists better manipulate cells for stem cell therapy.

An Alternative to Opioids? Compound From Marine Snail Is Potent Pain Reliever

3_conus_regius_1.jpg

A tiny snail may offer an alternative to opioids for pain relief. Scientists at the University of Utah have found a compound that blocks pain by targeting a pathway not associated with opioids. Research in rodents indicates that the benefits continue long after the compound have cleared the body.
