Exploiting Stem Cell Stickiness

NIH National Institutes of Health

There is much excitement about the potential of stem cells for many applications, including regenerative medicine and treating human diseases. But growing pure cultures of stem cells by reprograming adult cells—like human fibroblasts—into a less differentiated cell type called a human induced Pluripotent Stem cell (iPS cell), is a tricky business....

Promises and Perils

Research Magazine

“Our bodies are good at rejecting foreign organisms, cells and tissues,” said Stice, who collaborates with other researchers in developing a treatment for Parkinson’s disease. The treatment is based on growing human stem cells into nerve cells that could be implanted in the brain.

The Brave New World

Georgia Magazine

Stice has been making news since he was in graduate school. While still working on his Ph.D. in 1988, he did one of the first successful demonstrations of cloning techniques in rabbits. Then, barely 10 years later, in January 1998, he had gone beyond cloning...
