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.

A Better Way to Grow Bone: Fresh, Purified Fat Stem Cells Can Grow Bone Better and Faster than Current Methods

UCLA stem cell scientists purified a subset of stem cells found in fat tissue and made from them bone that was formed faster and was of higher quality than bone grown using traditional methods, a finding that may one day eliminate the need for painful bone grafts that use material taken from the patient during invasive procedures.
