“Missing Link” Discovered Between Stem Cells and the Immune System

UCLA researchers have discovered a type of cell that is the “missing link” between bone marrow stem cells and all the cells of the human immune system, a finding that will lead to a greater understanding of how a healthy immune system is produced and how disease can lead to poor immune function.

The studies were done using human bone marrow, which contains all the stem cells that produce blood during postnatal life.

Embryonic Blood Vessels that Give Rise to Blood Stem Cells can be Manipulated to Create Beating Heart Muscle Cells

Scientists led by Dr. Hanna Mikkola of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA have found for the first time a surprising and unexpected plasticity in the embryonic endothelium, the place where blood stem cells are made in early development. The two-year study is published Aug. 3, 2012 in the peer-reviewed journalCell.

$20 Million Grant to Develop New Melanoma Treatment and Test it in Clinical Trials Awarded to Scientists

A team of scientists led by Dr. Antoni Ribas, a member of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research Center at UCLA and a professor of medicine, were awarded a $20 million grant today to take leading-edge stem cell science from the laboratory and translate it into a new treatment for metastatic melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer.
