  • Translating Stem Cell Research Into Therapies

    ScienceDaily (May 25, 2011) — A new article published by Cell Press in the May 26 issue of the journal Neuron provides comprehensive insight into the current status of neural stem cell research and the sometimes labyrinthine pathways leading to stem cell-based therapies.

    "Stem cell research is one of the most rapidly developing areas of science and medicine," says study author Dr. Sally Temple from the Neural Stem Cell Institute in Rensselaer, New York. "The explosive rise in discoveries and technologies that we see in the basic research labs has yet to enter the pipeline, and there is an ENORMOUS gap between what we can do at the bench and what we see in the current clinical trials. It is imperative that we work towards making the process of translation more effective and affordable."
