While it’s only one of many research areas being pursued at Johns Hopkins Medicine, stem cell research is making great strides in many labs across campus, from our formal stem cell center, the Institute for Cell Engineering to the Kimmel Cancer Center to the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Whitaker Institute — exciting things are happening.
As co-hosts of the 2009 World Stem Cell Summit we are proud to share a taste of the latest research.
Read more about these tiny cells and their potential and learn how Johns Hopkins researchers are answering these questions:
- How do stem cells stay stem cells?
- How are stem cells coaxed to become specific cell types?
- How are adult cells and adult stem cells being used for therapy?
- How do we keep track of stem cells and what do they look like
- How do we deal with the ethical and safety issues around human stem cell research and therapy?
