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...
