Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells for treatment of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases

Speaker:             Ulrich Martin Department:     Cell biology Location:            Erasmus MC Rotterdam Date:                    15-5-2017 Author:               Katja Slangewal The endogenous heart regeneration after a myocardial infarct is far from sufficient in mammals. Actually, less than 50% of the cardiomyocytes in a mammal heart are replaced during the entire life span. These facts immediately show the … Continue reading Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells for treatment of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases

Wnt/ß-catenin signaling controls cell reprogramming (and nucleosomes form clutches)

Bionanoscience Seminar, 08.05.2015 Speaker: Pia Cosma (Center for Genomic Regulation, Barcelona (Spain)) Author: Edgar Schönfeld Pia Cosma's research is focused on cell reprogramming. Her talk was divided into two major subjects that deal with cellular reprogramming: Wnt/ß-Catenin signaling and chromatin organization. Reprogramming can be achieved via nuclear transfer or direct reprogramming, which involves the introduction … Continue reading Wnt/ß-catenin signaling controls cell reprogramming (and nucleosomes form clutches)
