Willy Lensch, PhD, explains what makes HIP unique.
2013 interns from four HSCI laboratories talk about what they learned doing hands-on stem cell research. Applications to be part of the 2014 internship program--as a student or mentor--are now being accepted. For more information, please visit our website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
|New Means of Growing Intestinal Stem Cells|
Jeff Karp, PhD, and Robert Langer, PhD, open new door to investigating and treating intestinal diseases.
Harvard Stem Cell researchers and collaborators have shown that they can grow unlimited quantities of intestinal stem cells, then stimulate them to develop into nearly pure populations of different types of mature intestinal cells. Using these cells, scientists could develop and test new drugs to treat diseases such as ulcerative colitis. Continue reading.
