Guest:

Dr. Steven Stice is the DW Brooks Distinguished Professor and Director of the Regenerative Bioscience Center at the University of Georgia, and the Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of ArunA Biomedical. He talks about his early work cloning rabbits and reprogramming blastomeres. He also discusses using exosomes to treat neurological diseases, helping trainees move into industry, and preserving endangered species.

The Stem Cell Science Round Up

Rejuvenating Mice with Heterochronic Parabiosis – Researchers constructed a single-cell transcriptomic atlas and found that heterochronic parabiosis rejuvenated adult stem cells across tissues.

A Molecular Reference Atlas for over 400 Cell Types – Scientists used single-cell transcriptomics to measure mRNA in nearly 500,000 cells from 24 tissues and organs.

Understanding Disease Gene Function – A cross-tissue atlas allowed researchers to link specific cell populations to monogenic and polygenic diseases.

Immune Cell Diversity in the Human Body – Researchers designed an automated cell classification tool to assign cell identity to immune cells across tissues.

Mapping the Developing Immune System – Scientists combined single-cell RNA sequencing, antigen-receptor sequencing, and spatial transcriptomics to reconstruct the developing immune system.

How XIST Loss Affects Stem Cell Differentiation and Tumor Development – The loss of XIST impairs human mammary stem cell differentiation and promotes the emergence of highly tumorigenic and metastatic carcinomas.
