A robust, efficient method for deriving microglia, the immune cells of the brain, from human stem cells has been developed by researchers. This new protocol now enables scientists around the world to generate this critical cell type from individual patients and improve our understanding of the role of microglia neurological malfunction.

Clarification of how human blood vessels are constructed is desperately needed to advance regenerative medicine. Researchers investigated the changes in gene functions that occur when stem cells become vascular cells. They found that the histone code, which alters the transcriptional state of the gene, changes over time as stem cells differentiate into blood vessels in response to a stimulus.

An innovative method to make an unlimited supply of healthy blood cells from the readily available cells that line blood vessels has been discovered by scientists. This achievement marks the first time that any research group has generated such blood-forming stem cells.
|Approaching a decades-old goal: Making blood stem cells from patients' own cells|

For the first time, researchers have generated blood-forming stem cells in the lab using pluripotent stem cells, which can make virtually every cell type in the body. The advance opens new avenues for research into the root causes of blood diseases and to creating immune-matched blood cells for treatment purposes, derived from patients' own cells.
