Scientists reverse aging process in rat brain stem cells
Scientists say the results have far reaching implications for how we understand the aging process, and how we might develop much-needed treatments for age-related brain diseases.

Bacteria made to mimic cells, form communities
Scientists have found a way to make single-celled bacteria behave like stem cells, differentiating into genetically unique individuals as they divide.

Novel dual stem cell therapy improving cardiac regeneration
Researchers have recently developed a multipronged approach for concurrently rejuvenating both the muscle cells and vascular systems of the heart by utilizing two types of stem cells. The findings give hope to develop a new treatment for repairing hearts damaged by myocardial infarction, as an alternative to heart transplant.

A new method of tooth repair? Scientists uncover mechanisms to inform future treatment
Stem cells hold the key to wound healing, as they develop into specialized cell types throughout the body -- including in teeth. Now an international team of researchers has found a mechanism that could offer a potential novel solution to tooth repair.

Adding MS drug to targeted cancer therapy may improve glioblastoma outcomes
The multiple sclerosis drug teriflunomide, paired with targeted cancer therapy, markedly shrinks patient-derived glioblastomas grown in mice by reaching stem cells at the tumor's root, according to a new study.
