UC San Diego School of Medicine has been awarded $9 million to fund research projects using human pluripotent stem cells, CRISPR and human organoids to dissect beta cell defects and create a human cel ...
The multiple sclerosis drug teriflunomide, paired with targeted cancer therapy, markedly shrinks patient-derived glioblastomas grown in mice by reaching stem cells at the tumor’s root, according to a ...

UC San Diego will launch a payload of stem cell-derived human brain organoids to the International Space Station. Researchers will document how these “mini brains” organize into the beginnings of a fu ...
UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers identified chemical compounds that prevent stress-induced clumping of TDP-43 protein in ALS motor neurons grown in the lab — a starting point for new ALS th ...
UC San Diego researchers discover new role for epidermal growth factor receptor in blood stem cell development, a crucial key to being able to generate them in the laboratory, and circumvent the need ...
Using stem cells derived from six people, UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers recapitulated retinal cells in the lab. This “eye-in-a-dish” model allowed them to identify genetic variants that ...
An international team of scientists led by researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine employed an array of next-generation sequencing and gene-editing tools, such as CRISPR, ...
Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health treats the first patient treated for cancer with a human-induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived cell therapy called FT500. Dan Kaufman collaborated wi ...
Using a leading-edge technique, UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers defined the cell types in both newborn and adult human testes and identified biomarkers for spermatogonial stem cells, openi ...
In a study published January 17, 2019 in Translational Psychiatry, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine describe how, in a novel mouse model, epigenetic regulation nega ...
Thirteen years ago, Natalie made a wish that inspired her parents to found the Cystinosis Research Foundation. With their support, UC San Diego researchers are now developing a stem cell-based therapy ...
Time may blur, but the first quarter-century of the newly renamed Shiley Eye Institute – it celebrates that anniversary this year – remains sharply defined in its accomplishments and its focus on the ...
When UC San Diego Jacobs Medical Center opens in 2016, blood and marrow transplant patients will have rooms with panoramic views and leading-edge treatments such as stem cell-directed clinical transl ...
