Turning Skin Cells Into Blood Vessel Cells While Keeping Them Young

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago have identified a molecular switch that converts skin cells into cells that make up blood vessels, which could ultimately be used to repair damaged vessels in patients with heart disease or to engineer new vasculature in the lab.

Blind Tadpoles Learn Visually After Researchers Graft Eyes Onto Tails and Treat Them with Neurotransmitter Drugs

Blindtadpolewithgraftedeye.jpg

Blind tadpoles were able to process visual information from eyes grafted onto their tails after being treated with a small molecule neurotransmitter drug that augmented innervation, integration, and function of the transplanted organs. The work, which used a pharmacological reagent already approved for use in humans, provides a potential road map for promoting innervation – the supply of nerves to a body part – in regenerative medicine.

Zinc in the Retina May Indicate A New Way to Protect and Regenerate the Optic Nerve in Glaucoma Patients

Connecting pieces of information by finding a common thread often takes glaucoma researchers in unexpected directions. Zinc is one such thread that joined together different experts at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
