A recent study led by Dr. Sergiu Pasca at Stanford University suggests that human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) could be used to identify potential new medications for schizophrenia. The research team developed a novel technique to produce astrocytes, star-shaped cells that support neurons, from iPSCs derived from patients with schizophrenia. Astrocytes play a critical […]

From Old to Gold: The Role of Stem Cells in Redefining Aging

stem cell therapy potential for anti-aging

This Wired article discusses the advancements in the field of stem cell research and its potential impact on aging. Scientists have been investigating how stem cells, which can transform into any cell type in the body, decline in function with age. This decline contributes to the aging process and the onset of age-related diseases. Researchers […]
