Treatments that Make a Difference

Researchers are using stem cell biology to change the practice of medicine for Parkinson's, diabetes, heart disease, muscular dystrophy, and more.

Learn about the vision for the University of Minnesota's Stem Cell Institute. DirectorJakub Tolar, MD, PhD, addressed the faculty, staff, and students of the SCI in January 2013.

The East Bank Circulator now stops at both ends of the Biodiscovery District. The new stop is just east of the MTRF in front of the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research building. Circulators run every 10 minutes during regular school hours and dates. See UMN Parking and Transportation for a map and more information.

Nature Materials: Bioengineers at UC Berkeley discovered that physical cues can replace certain chemical cues in creating induced pluripotent stem cells.

Nature Protocols: Scientists at Cambridge University have developed a new way to culture liver-like cells from stem cells.

Students involved or interested in stem cell research are invited to the Regional Regeneration Symposium jointly sponsored by the UMN Stem Cell Institute and the UW Tissue and Cellular Innovation Center - River Falls.on November 19, 2013, from 9:00 to noon at the UW River Falls Campus.
