Researchers discovered which genes are required for each stage of cell differentiation into neural stem cells and neurons, i.e. for brain development, and which of them are involved in diseases of the nervous system
A study by researchers at the Hebrew University found that in mature cells derived from stem cells, which are used in the field of regenerative medicine that focuses on renewing living tissues and creating organs for transplantation, cancerous mutations may appear
Researchers have built cellular models of genetic diseases such as fragile X syndrome and found the mechanism that causes them
Today, patients needing a heart transplant have to join a waiting list, and hearts become available when someone else dies. Because there are not enough hearts, only critically ill patients are put on the waiting list
