Despite progress involving the use of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) within disease modeling and drug discovery applications, it will be a long path to achieve the broad-scale use of iPSC-derived cell types in human patients. [Read more…]
Many experts have spoken about the power of stem cells and their ability to alter the field of healthcare forever, including these top stem cell quotes of all-time. With exponential progress occurring in the field, stem cells are ushering in an age of regenerative medicine that will transform healthcare in ways that are now inconceivable.
In coming decades, stem cells will be reversing diseases ranging from Alzheimer’s to autism, re-growing organs and tissues, and potentially allowing the first humans to reach the age of 200.
Some exciting advances with stem cells include these “science fictions” that have become “science facts”: [Read more…]
More and more athletes are turning to stem cell treatments, because the pressure to get back on the field is high and access to these experimental therapies is continuing to increase. Athletes commonly suffer serious injuries that could potentially end their careers and cause them serious long-term health complications. Most of them turn to surgery to resolve those injuries.
However, some of them are pursuing stem cell treatments and regenerative therapies, because these procedures are less invasive than surgery and have the potential to speed and augment repair. While the effectiveness of these surgeries is largely unknown, what is clear is that a growing number of athletes are turning to this approach. [Read more…]
The potential of lab-grown meat has captured the imagination of investors, researchers, and consumers alike. In the late 1990s, Willem van Eelen was the first applicant to file the first patent for a cultured meat manufacturing method. Although the lab-grown meat industry has only existed for about 25 years, 2020 was a turning point because a cultured chicken product developed by the company “Eat Just” made its debut at a restaurant menu in Singapore.

Cultured meat refers to meat created using cell culture techniques within a laboratory or manufacturing facility. It is produced by growing master cells collected from cattle, chicken, pigs, fish, lamb, and other livestock. Cultured meat is ethically produced, because livestock is not used within the manufacturing processes beyond collecting the initial cells required for cell culture. [Read more…]
