UW Medicine Researchers Explore New Approaches to Treating Childhood Leukemia

October 1, 2018 | Categories: Research | Tagged: ,

Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) is the most common type of childhood cancer, representing approximately 25% of cancer diagnoses in children 0-15. More than 3,000 new cases of ALL are diagnosed every year in the United States - and the incidence rate is rising. Read More

Lewis County students see biomedical research firsthand

August 12, 2018 | Categories: Announcements | Tagged: , ,

More than 40 researchers and volunteers representing 19 labs from UW Medicine gave Lewis County high school students a glimpse last week into the world of biomedical research. The scientists and their colleagues conducted interactive sessions at W.F. West High School in Chehalis, Wash. Afterward, the students visited UW Medicine labs in Seattle.  Read More

Researchers use stem cells to restore heart function in primates

July 2, 2018 | Categories: Research | Tagged: , ,

Results of a study published today in Nature Biotechnology suggest techniques that could treat patients with heart failure. Researchers at UW Medicine in Seattle have successfully used human stem cells to restore heart function in monkeys with heart failure. The findings suggest that the technique will be effective in patients with heart failure, the leading cause of death in the world. Read More

Understanding Alzheimers

May 23, 2018 | Categories: Research | Tagged: , , ,

New cell lines will allow researchers to probe the basic biology of Alzheimer’s. Currently, however, there are no treatments that can prevent or slow the progression of this memory-robbing disease, which affects more than 5 million Americans. One reason for this is that we really don’t know the cause of Alzheimer’s: It is known that brain cells that are crucial to forming new memories die. But we don’t know why. Read More

NIH accepts new ISCRM hESC lines

May 22, 2018 | Categories: Research

On May 9, 2018, three new ISCRM human embryonic stem cell (hESC) lines were accepted onto the NIH Stem Cell Registry.  Originated from donated human preimplantation blastocysts, Carol Ware derived the lines in medium that halted development in a preimplantation stage so they maintained a naive character.  All three lines have a good karyotype. The cell […] Read More

Robots grow mini-organs from human stem cells

May 17, 2018 | Categories: Research | Tagged: , ,

A robotic approach to mass-producing organoids could accelerate regenerative medicine research and drug discovery. An automated system that uses robots has been designed to rapidly produce human mini-organs derived from stem cells. Researchers at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle developed the new system. Read More
