Medicine and technology can work together to produce amazing results. One of the most promising ‘marriages’ is that involving stem cell research and artificial intelligence (AI). Researchers are attempting to use AI to aid and augment stem cell technologies. How can machine learning play a role in restorative medicine? [Read more…]
Since the outbreak of the new type of coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) in December 2019, the scientific community has been working fervently to develop treatments to combat the disease. Globally, scientists are exploring every potential weapon to suppress the global threat. Approaches under investigation include vaccines, medications, combination therapies, and perhaps most interestingly, living therapies with promising cell types such as natural killer (NK) cells, stem cells and exosomes.

What is the Cymerus™ technology and how could it potentially assist in the battle against Coronavirus cases on a global basis? Cymerus™ is a stem cell manufacturing platform being developed by Cynata Therapeutics Limited (ASX: CYP), an Australian regenerative medicine company.
The proprietary technology utilizes induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) originating from an adult donor as the starting material for generating mesenchymoangioblasts (MCAs). It then differentiates these cells into mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). [Read more…]
