  • New process to differentiate stem cells

    8 days ago - By ScienceDaily

    As scientists try to find therapy options to fight back and neck pain, considerable interest exists in harnessing stem cells to restore nucleus pulposus, the chief material in discs. Previous research shows human induced pluripotent stem cells can express markers for a wide variety of cells, including those that secrete NP. Scientists have developed a new process to generate NP-like cells from hiPSCs.
