Researchers at Columbia University, including ISCC member Timothy Wang, recently published a paper entitled, “Bone Stem Cells Shown to Regenerate Bone and Cartilage in Adult Mice.”
Researchers at Columbia University, including ISCC member Timothy Wang, recently published a paper entitled, “Bone Stem Cells Shown to Regenerate Bone and Cartilage in Adult Mice.”  Dr. Wang said  “Our findings raise the possibility that drugs or other therapies can be developed to stimulate the production of OCR stem cells and improve the body’s ability to repair bone injury—a process that declines significantly in old age.”  Previously, Dr. Wang found an analogous stem cell in the intest...

Mark Donowitz: Organs on a Chip
ISCC Co –Investigator, Mark Donowitz, M.D., discusses his interests in artificial organs and how they may help in finding a cure for debilitating diarrheal diseases in this online article featured on the blog Beyond the Dish. Dr. Donowitz’s lab at Johns Hopkins University, has developed the first step in a device he calls, “guts-on-a-chip”, using isolated human intestinal cells in order to mimic the role of the human intestine.

Michael Helmrath, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center - Scientists Grow, Implant Human Intestinal Tissue in Mice
SUNDAY, Oct. 19, 2014 (HealthDay News) - Scientists used stem cells to grow "organoids" of functioning human intestinal tissue in a lab dish. They then transplanted the organoids into mice, creating a new model for studying intestinal disorders, according to the researchers. "This provides a new way to study the many diseases and conditions that can cause intestinal failure, from genetic disorders appearing at birth to conditions that strike later in life, such as cancer and Crohn's disease," l...

Calvin Kuo, Stanford University - Organs in a dish help pinpoint cancer-causing mutations
Krista Conger on May 28th, 2014 - "We have developed a method to grow many different, normal organs outside of the body, in something like a petri dish. We call this an “organoid” system in which we can grow colons, or stomachs, or pancreases as little balls of cells. We can then introduce the DNA for potential cancer genes at will into the organoids and see if these genes induce cancerous characteristics. "
