For kidney therapy, we will generate specific kidney cell populations with therapeutic potential such as podocytes and tubular epithelial cells by combining emerging cutting-edge technologies from the fields of cellular reprogramming
and pluripotent stem cells differentiation.
We are now working on improving the cellular reprogramming
process and hope to have a more clinically viable protocol that we could offer to patients living with this disease in the near future," said Dr.
1) This report is the first-ever publication about successful cellular reprogramming
techniques that could generate an entire organ.
But the research offers a new approach to making stem cells and is a major first step in characterizing how cellular reprogramming
happens, says Wu.
He heads the laboratory of regenerative medicine at the Clinical Research Center for Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Immunology where his research interests include Hutchinson-Gilford Syndrome, new methods of cellular reprogramming
, molecular mechanisms of skin and cartilage regeneration and personalized medicine in oncology.
Researchers at Gladstone Institutes and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) revealed a new cellular reprogramming
method that transforms human skin cells into liver cells that are virtually indistinguishable from the cells that make up liver tissue, Khaleej Times reported.
Researchers in the laboratories of Gladstone Senior Investigator Sheng Ding, PhD, and UCSF Associate Professor Holger Willenbring, MD, PhD, reveal a new cellular reprogramming
method that transforms human skin cells into liver cells that are virtually indistinguishable from the cells that make up native liver tissue.
So, scientists have begun to look toward cellular reprogramming
as a way to regenerate this damaged heart muscle.
But since the Nobel Assembly awarded two scientists for the latter approach, for artificially converting somatic cells into a state of self-proclaimed "pluripotency" through nuclear transfer and cellular reprogramming
These patents and patent applications represent some of the earliest filings on advanced cellular reprogramming
technologies that do not utilize egg cells in the traditional sense of somatic cell nuclear transfer," remarked William Caldwell, Chief Executive Officer of ACT.
SAN FRANCISCO -- Today's Roddenberry International Symposium on Cellular Reprogramming
in San Francisco will be Drs.
More recently, we became interested in cellular reprogramming
because we hypothesized that understanding cellular plasticity could yield new insights into cancer and ageing.
