Human Neural Stem Cells Drive Spine Regeneration in Rats

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Researchers generated stable lines of spinal cord neural stem cells in culture. Transplanted into a rat model of spinal cord injury, the cells enabled robust regeneration of functional neurons along the length of the spine.

A Joint Effort to Understand Cartilage Development

Keck Medicine of USC

Anyone with arthritis can appreciate how useful it would be if scientists could grow cartilage in the lab. To this end, Keck School of Medicine of USC scientists in the USC Stem Cell laboratory of Denis Evseenko, MD, PhD, collaborated with colleagues at several institutions to provide new insights into how gene activity drives the development of cartilage. Their findings appear today in Nature Communications.

Glaucoma Research Foundation Grant Leads to Major Breakthrough in Neuron Regeneration

Glaucoma Research Foundation

Glaucoma Research Foundation, a national non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for glaucoma, today announced a team of neuroscience researchers, led by Adriana Di Polo, PhD, at University of Montreal, have made a major breakthrough in the treatment of glaucoma. The research, which was made possible by a Glaucoma Research Foundation Shaffer Grant, could also be applicable to other neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease.

Researchers Rescue Embryos From Brain Defects by Re-Engineering Cellular Voltage Patterns

Tufts University

Tufts biologists have demonstrated for the first time that electrical patterns in developing embryos can be predicted, mapped and manipulated to prevent defects caused by harmful substances such as nicotine. The study suggests that targeting bioelectric states may be a new treatment modality for regenerative repair in brain development and disease.
