Short and long term effects of neural progenitor transplantation following cervical spinal cord contusion injury

Video and Abstract:
Impaired breathing is a devastating consequence of cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) that increases morbidity and the risk of mortality. Injuries at high-to-mid cervical levels (C1-4) result in the most severe deficits as the phrenic motor circuitry – controlling the diaphragm – is directly compromised, typically resulting in dependence on assisted ventilation. 355 more words

Stem cell dentistry - my first trip into science writing!

I’ve always loved science and always seen myself doing something science related as a career! Obviously during the rough times and bad days doing my PhD, I’ve toyed with the idea that I wouldn’t want to be at the lab bench forever and loved the idea of being a scientific writer – although what that actually meant I wasn’t completely sure! 105 more words

From Harvard: "Colorful clones track stem cells"

Harvard University

November 23, 2016 {Just found this in social media.]
Hannah Robbins, HSCI Communications

Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) researchers have used a colorful cell-labeling technique to track the development of the blood system and trace the lineage of adult blood cells traveling through the vast networks of veins, arteries, and capillaries back to their parent stem cells in the marrow. 868 more words
