Gladstone's Deepak Srivastava comments on research in which scientists reprogram cells inside living mice -- and discover that the pluripotent stem cells created in the process are even more flexible than those derived from embryos or grown in laboratory dishes.
Are we on the cusp of curing HIV/AIDS? The Gladstone Institutes joins with leaders from CIRM, UCSF and others to engage the community in an interactive forum on cure research on October 1.
Gladstone scientists report that they've transformed one kind of human heart cell into another in laboratory experiments, a promising development in the bid to find ways to repair damage from heart attacks.
Researchers have found a way to genetically reprogram scar tissue in the heart to make it behave like muscle tissue.
Scarred heart tissue can be transformed into beating cells using a cocktail of five genes, according to a new study.
Gladstone researchers performed the feat using human cells in a laboratory dish.
Heart disease, a leading cause of death in the U.S., costs billions, literally, in terms of services, medications, and lost productivity. Now, researchers have developed a new technique that “personalizes” treatment for those suffering from heart disease — a gene therapy approach that would be able to convert cells into heart muscle cells.
Gladstone scientists have come a step closer to being able to repair the damage done by heart attacks, using a “cocktail of genes” to transform scar tissue into working heart muscles.
Researchers from the Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco found that injecting a therapy of genes into dead heart cells has promising implications for restarting the cells, based on studies done in mice and human cells in a lab.
