DeForest Lab Pioneers 4D Biomimicry Systems With Ingenuity, Collaboration, and an NIH Grant

October 1, 2020 | Categories: Award, Core Faculty, Uncategorized | Tagged: , ,

In reality show terms, Cole DeForest and his team manufacture tiny bio-worlds staged to mimic living systems, force an eclectic cast of cells to cohabitate, apply light, heat, and chemicals to stir up drama, then record it all with sophisticated monitoring equipment. What they see on the tiniest scales, could have major implications for medicine. Read More

Stevens Lab Unveils Novel System for Regulating Gene Expression with Heat

September 30, 2020 | Categories: Research, Uncategorized | Tagged: , , , ,

Researchers hoping to create disease models or regenerate organs need systems that precisely mimic the degree of complexity found in the natural world. The Stevens Lab is helping to answer the call with a new system that regulates gene expression patterns using heat Read More

Zheng Lab Uses New 3D Model to Study Effect of Curvature on Endothelial Cells

September 16, 2020 | Categories: Research | Tagged: , , ,

Every day, million of cars navigate a complex network of wide, straight highways, busy streets and avenues, and side roads that bend and curve in unpredictable patterns. Now a new 3D modeling tool will help scientists study even more complex traffic patterns at work in our blood vessels. Read More

Color-Coding Technology Reveals New Insights About Stem Cell Biology

July 29, 2020 | Categories: Research | Tagged: , , ,

Several years ago, Danny El-Nachef was given a mission to create a tool to observe and track how stem cells behaved during the earliest stages of human heart development. While the focus of the challenge was human biology, the x-factor in the solution came from the sea. Read More

Improving Islet Transplantation to Treat Type 1 Diabetes

June 22, 2020 | Categories: Award | Tagged: , , , , , ,

A major grant from the NIH will allow three ISCRM investigators to use their combined expertise in islet and stem cell biology, vascular biology and cellular immunology, and biomaterials to significantly improve the wellbeing of people with type 1 diabetes. Read More

Young Lab Links Loss of SORL1 Gene to Increased Alzheimer’s Risk

June 2, 2020 | Categories: Research | Tagged: , , ,

To overcome the inherent challenges in studying the brain, one ISCRM team used stem cell technology to implicate a gene known as SORL1 in some types of Alzheimer’s and to shed new light on why many promising treatments for this disease have hit dead ends in clinical trials. Read More
