Fall & Winter 2014 Stem Cell Research Update

Bedford Research Stem Cells Glow! Breakthroughs in understanding circadian rhythms in stem cells. Fall 2014: Bedford Research scientists are following up on their discovery that stem cells have a circadian rhythm that may need to be supported for optimum development in the laboratory. In the body, the daily pattern of light and dark controls many…

Progress in Circadian Rhythms And Stem Cells

BSCRF scientists have derived two unique lines of stem cells that may lead to a breakthrough in the efficiency of stem cell derivation and expansion. BSCRF scientists are following up their discovery that the genes that regulate the rhythms of daily life, circadian rhythm genes, may play important roles in stem cell derivation and stability…

2010 ISSCR: a remarkable lack of new clinical trials for stem cell therapy announced

This past week (June 16-19) in San Francisco, Bedford Research Foundation had a booth at the ISSCR (International Society for Stem Cell Research) 8th annual conference. We joined over 3,500 scientists, students and advisers attending the meeting from around the world. The conference boasted more than 200 talks, and some eye opening research from scientists such…

Clock Gene in Stem Cells Shows Evidence of Importance of Circadian Rhythms

MASSACHUSETTS SCIENTISTS MAKE STEM CELL DISCOVERY Cell Multiplication Controlled by a Surprising set of Genes (download PDF) (Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics) Stem cell researcher Dr. Ann Kiessling announced today the discovery of cell characteristics that may explain important differences between embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells. Scientists have for years been frustrated…
