Researchers discuss Creating HIV-Fighting Stem Cells

Human stem cells can be genetically engineered into HIV-fighting cells, according to a study by scientists with the BSCRC at UCLA, Drs. Scott G. Kitchen and Jerome Zack.

Researchers discuss the Placental Niche

Dr. Hanna Mikkola of the BSCRC at UCLA, and Akanksha Chhabra, a post-doctoral fellow, discuss their discovery of a critical placental niche cell and signaling pathway that prevents blood precursors from premature differentiation in the placenta, a process that is necessary for ensuring proper blood supply for an individual's lifetime.

Researchers Explain Neural Cell Breakthrough

BSCRC researchers explain neural cell breakthrough of being the first to derive potentially clinically usable induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells and differentiate them into neurons in animal origin-free derivation and differentiation conditions using commercially available reagents to facilitate broad application.

Creating Embryonic Stem Cell Lines

Dr. Amander Clark, an assistant professor of molecular, cell and developmental biology and a researcher with the BSCRC at UCLA discusses creating human embryonic stem cell (hESC) lines.

Kathrin Plath: Here. Now. UCLA.

Dr. Kathrin Plath, UCLA Biological Chemistry Professor and BSCRC researcher, talks about the incredibly rapid pace of research in the field of embryonic stem cells. Her ground-breaking work has resulted in the transformation of ordinary mouse cells into the equivalent of stem cells.

Stem Cell Research

BSCRC Director Owen Witte, MD and Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center Director Judith Gasson, PhD discuss the importance of stem cell research.

UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center $20 Million Gift Announcement

The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation donated $20 million to fund adult and embryonic stem cell research at UCLA, enhancing a program that brings together biologists, chemists, engineers, geneticists and other scientists to develop new and more effective treatments for cancer, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson’s, metabolic disorders and other medical conditions.
