ESC Research

I carefully monitor the Science Daily RSS feed for articles on stem cell research. There are a great many applications for adult stem cells, progressing in human trials.

To date, I have found one application for embryonic cells (just starting human trials).

Now, two more articles on using ESC for simple research:
  1. Using gene "knock-out" to study the effects of a gene on cell transport (normally done in mice)
  2. Studying the underlying mechanisms of stem cells
