Molecule repairs brain

UCLA researchers identify molecule that signals brain tissue to form new connections

Carmichael

Dr. S. Thomas Carmichael, co-director of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research, and a team of researchers have identified a molecule that signals brain tissue to form new connections after a stroke.

3,000 genes discovered

Scientists at the UCLA Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research have discovered more than 3,000 previously unknown genes in a poorly understood part of the genome. These genes, found in rare cells in bone marrow and in the thymus, give scientists a new understanding of how the human immune system develops.

The findings were published today in the journal Nature Immunology.

Stem Cell Awareness Day

In celebration of Stem Cell Awareness Day, students in Dr. Peggy Simon’s AP Biology class at Culver City High School discussed stem cell science with Dr. Michael Hicks, a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. April Pyle’s lab at the UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center.

UCLA-led study shows deadly prostate cancer cells have stem cell qualities

 

Scientists at the UCLA Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research have shown that the cells responsible for generating deadly prostate cancer share some genetic qualities with the tissue-specific stem cells that naturally reside in the healthy prostate.

The findings were published today in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Ovarian cancer discovery

Published August 3 in the journal Nature Communications, research from physician scientist Dr. Sanaz Memarzadeh – member of the UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center – identified an ovarian 'cancer stem cell' that may be the key to unlocking the secret to recurring disease and significantly changing the way a common form of ovarian cancer is treated.
