Metabolic State of Brain Cancer Stem Cells is Significantly Different than that of Differentiated Cancer Cells

The metabolic state of glioma stem cells, which give rise to deadly glioblastomas, is significantly different from that of the brain cancer cells to which they give birth, a factor which helps those stem cells avoid treatment and cause recurrence later.

Cells Derived from Pluripotent Stem Cells are Developmentally Immature and May Pose Challenges in Clinical Use, Disease Modeling

BSCRC members William Lowry, Hanna Mikkola, Michaela Patterson, David Chan and colleagues have discovered that three types of cells derived from human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells are similar to each other, but are much more developmentally immature than previously thought when compared to those same cell types taken directly from human tissue.
