A case of reverse development: Dana-Farber scientists solve long-debated puzzle of how the intestine heals itself
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Scientists find that normal intestinal cells “de-differentiate” en masse into stem cells that generate the cells needed for a healthy intestinal lining. New study establishes de-differentiation as the predominant mode of stem cell recover in the intestine

UCLA researchers discover new compound that promotes lung health
University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

A molecule identified by UCLA researchers helps maintain a healthy balance of cells in airway and lung tissue. If the compound, so far only studied in isolated human and mouse cells, has the same effect in people, it may lead to new drugs to treat or prevent lung cancer.

Proper heart development all about timing
University of Chicago Medical Center

The University of Chicago Medicine's Ivan Moskowitz, MD, PhD, and his team are studying why some cells develop into their adult forms more quickly than others, and how issues with that timing can lead to congenital heart disease.

New CAR-T Target Yields Promising Results for Multiple Myeloma
Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah

In research published today in the journal Nature Communications, Utah-based scientists describe a novel way to treat cancers using chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy. Laboratory tests using mouse models and tumor cells from patients displayed promising results for this novel cellular immunotherapy for multiple myeloma and other types of blood cancer.

Allen Institute for Cell Science Extends Agreement with Coriell Institute for Medical Research
Coriell Institute for Medical Research

The Allen Institute has extended its contract with the Coriell Institute for Medical Research for the storage and distribution of its Allen Cell Collection, a cutting-edge collection of gene-edited human induced pluripotent stem cell lines. This collection was launched in 2016 with five cell lines, and since has grown to include more than 40 lines. The new agreement will continue this relationship for an additional three years.

New Injection Technique May Boost Spinal Cord Injury Repair Efforts
University of California San Diego Health

Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine, with colleagues, describe a new method for delivering neural precursor cells to spinal cord injuries in rats, reducing the risk of further injury and boosting the propagation of potentially reparative cells.

After a bone injury, shape-shifting cells rush to the rescue
University of Michigan

Conventional thinking is that bone regeneration is left to a small number of mighty cells called skeletal stem cells, which reside within larger groups of bone marrow stromal cells.
