Geometry influences stem cell differentiation

Scientists from the University of Chicago have successfully used geometrically patterned surfaces to influence the development of stem cells into either fat cells or bone cells. The new approach is a radical departure from that of many stem-cell biologists, who focus instead on uncovering the role of proteins in controlling the ultimate fate of stem […]

New Component Of Bone Identified

Scientists at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) have made an intriguing discovery to do with the properties of human bone. The scientists describe their results, published in Nature Materials, as like finding a sort of “glue” in human bone. It describes how young healthy bone resists fracture and how getting older increases the […]
