Critical stage of embryonic development now observable

A novel approach in the study of the development of mammalian embryos has been reported in the journal Nature Communications. The research, from the University of Cambridge, enables scientists to view critical aspects of embryonic development which was previously unobservable.

Banning federal funding for human embryonic stem cell research 'would derail related work'

Scientists hope to understand and treat disease, and possibly to grow new tissues to replace diseased organs

Disease-specific human embryonic stem cell lines

University of Michigan joins a small handful of US universities that are creating disease-specific human embryonic stem cell lines

Therapeutic potential of embryonic stem cells

The therapeutic potential of embryonic stem cells has been an intense focus of study and discussion in biomedical research and has resulted in technologies to produce human induced pluripotent stem cells.

Cell cultures: Maintaining embryonic stem cells

In a new study that could transform embryonic stem cell research, scientists discovered why mouse ES cells can be easily grown in a laboratory while other mammalian ES cells are difficult.

Key to embryonic stem cell differentiation

A protein called Shp2 plays a critical role in the pathways that control decisions for differentiation or self-renewal in both human embryonic stem cells and mouse embryonic stem cells.
