Scientists use stem cells to regrow spinal cords

Research on rats could one day help paralyzed humans 29.03.2016 By Barry Eitel SAN FRANCISCO Scientists announced Tuesday that they have successfully regenerated the spinal cords of paralyzed rats using stem cells, a breakthrough that the researchers hope will lead to human trials. Researchers built tiny patches of stem cells collected from rats and humans. They

Future brain therapies for Parkinson’s possible with stem cell bioengineering innovation

(Nanowerk News, Mar. 17, 2016) Scientists at Rutgers and Stanford universities have created a new technology that could someday help treat Parkinson's disease and other devastating brain-related conditions that affect millions of people. The technology - a major innovation - involves converting adult tissue-derived stem cells into human neurons on 3-D "scaffolds," or tiny islands,
