Interior Design for Stem Cells


How are stem cells influenced by their environment? For a better understanding of this question, scientists of the Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden, the Medical Faculty of the TU Dresden and the DFG Research Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden have reproduced the micro environment of stem cells in the laboratory. They have developed a matrix structure in which human blood stem cells grow three times faster than with previous conditions. These results were published June 16th in the journal Nature Method (http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nmeth.2523).
