Stem Cell Scientists Discover a Way to Correct Mutations in Human Mitochondria by RNA Targeting

Researchers at the UCLA stem cell center and the departments of chemistry and biochemistry and pathology and laboratory medicine have identified, for the first time, a generic way to correct mutations in human mitochondrial DNA by targeting corrective RNAs, a finding with implications for treating a host of mitochondrial diseases.

Study Reveals Crucial Cell and Signaling Pathway that Regulate the Placental Hematopoietic Niche

UCLA stem cell researchers have discovered a critical placental niche cell and signaling pathway that prevent blood precursors from premature differentiation in the placenta, a process necessary for ensuring proper blood supply for an individual’s lifetime.

BSCRC Receives $1 Million Gift to Support Annual Educational Symposium

The Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA received a $1 million gift today that will support a popular annual stem cell symposium on the Westwood campus that draws top scientists from around the world.

The Bloomfield Family Foundation, headed by Margaret “Peggy” Bloomfield of Pacific Palisades, made the gift. Bloomfield is a long-time supporter of the Broad Stem Cell Research Center.
