  • Organoids Offer Stem Cell Experts a Window into Kidney Disease

    Apr 07, 2014
    Over the past few decades, the rates of chronic kidney disease have risen due to conditions like diabetes, hypertension, immune-mediated disease and cardiovascular disease. Stem cell researchers are now using organoids, lab-grown models of human organs, to better understand kidney disease. In the future, organoids may also provide an important test model for experimental drugs.

  • Human Disease Modeling Under the Microscope

    Mar 06, 2014
    Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) have been hailed as a future cell therapy, but they are playing an equally important role in research, revolutionizing the way scientists study human disease. By cultivating human stem cell lines in a dish, scientists are better able to understand diseases, including those with unique genetic markers.

  • The ISSCR Celebrates American Heart Month

    Feb 13, 2014
    Millions of people across the globe suffer from heart attacks each year, and those that survive are left with scar tissue, which leads to an increased risk of chronic heart failure. In recognition of American Heart Month, the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) is pleased to shed light on an exciting area of stem cell research which could someday allow doctors to regenerate heart tissue within patients’ bodies, a process dubbed endogenous repair.
