New Stem Cell Tools To Aid Drug Development, Durham University and North East England Stem Cell Institute Study

Published: Sep 05, 2008

ScienceDaily (Sep. 5, 2008) — Scientists have designed, developed and tested new molecular tools for stem cell research to direct the formation of certain tissue types for use in drug development programmes. A collaborative team of scientists from Durham University and the North East England Stem Cell Institute (NESCI) have developed two synthetic molecules which can be used to coax stem cells to ‘differentiate’ - that is, transform into other forms of tissue.
