Stem Cells, Changing Fast
The Dark Side of the Sun
Stem cell research is one of the fastest-moving fields of science today, with new findings coming one after another. At the Weizmann Institute of Science, in just the past several months alone, researchers have discovered important new information about how stem cells grow, differentiate, and can be reprogrammed. Stem cells have the potential to change medicine as we know it – but there are still many steps ahead. Fortunately, Weizmann scientists never seem to get tired.
