Rita Levi-Montalcini Postdoctoral Fellowship in Regenerative Medicine

Posted by on June 30th, 2020

The Center of Regenerative Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications for the Rita Levi-Montalcini Postdoctoral Fellows in Regenerative Medicine program. These fellowships honor Rita Levi-Montalcini, whose Nobel-winning discovery of Nerve Growth Factor was among the first regenerative biology research to be conducted at WUSTL. The Center of Regenerative Medicine (CRM) seeks individuals[…]

Research Highlight #5: Leukemic stem cells from iPSCs

Posted by on June 9th, 2020

Today let’s delve into a curious case involving induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and leukemic stem cells (LSCs). Most blood cells derived from iPSCs are unable to engraft in immunodeficient mice. However, Wesely and colleagues observed an exceptionally high engraftment efficiency of cell lines derived from an individual affected by acute myeloid leukemia (AML). In[…]

Research Highlight #1: Inhibition of cell cycle regulators alters the EHT

Posted by on May 12th, 2020

Hello everyone! My name is Alessandro, I am a postdoc in love with science, stem cells and blood! I am also a big fan of the Node, The Company of Biologists generously granted me a travel grant back in 2016, that allowed me to discover the beautiful Cambridge (the old one). As the lockdown starts[…]

Postdoctoral researchers Solana lab

Posted by on March 2nd, 2020

Single-cell analysis of planarian stem cell differentiation and regeneration   The Solana lab seeks to recruit two postdocs (an experimental and a computational researcher) to develop projects on single-cell analysis of planarian stem cell differentiation. These positions are funded by the Leverhulme Trust. Single-cell sequencing methods are revolutionising the study of stem cells. The flatworm[…]

How do cells know their future and forget their past

Posted by on November 7th, 2019

All cells in the body contain the same genetic material. The difference between cells therefore depends solely on which genes are expressed or ‘turned on’. Now, researchers from the University of Copenhagen have gained new insights into how genes are turned on and off and how the cells “forget their past” while developing into a[…]

Secret talk between epithelium and endothelium determines hair follicle stem cell fate

Posted by on November 6th, 2019

By Kefei Nina Li and Prachi Jain   Stem cells are typically defined by their ability to self-renew and differentiate. These activities are tightly controlled by both intrinsic cues and extrinsic cues from the microenvironment, known as the SC niche. This niche consists of multiple components, among which blood vessels (BVs) are critical as they[…]

A gnawing question: which cells are responsible for tooth renewal and regeneration?

Posted by on October 23rd, 2019

By Amnon Sharir (UCSF), Allon M Klein (HMS), Ophir D Klein (UCSF) As most mouse geneticists know, treating a rodent with malocclusion of its front teeth can be a Sisyphean task: as much as one trims the tooth, it grows right back within a few days (Figure 1). The basis of this often-frustrating situation is that[…]
