Paul Tesar, PhD, of Case Western Reserve University, a member of the inaugural class of The New York Stem Cell Foundation - Robertson Investigators, published his research on the ability to isolate epiblast stem cells from preimplantation mouse embryos. This research enhances our understanding of the many forms of pluriportent stem cells that scientists use for researching so many debilitating diseases.

"I think that this paper will change the way people think about what human ES cells represent from a developmental perspective," said Dr. Kevin Eggan, NYSCF Chief Scientific Officer and Associate Professor of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute...

Epiblast stem cells

Postby Ned » Fri Mar 11, 2011 5:29 pm

The article, isolation of epiblast stem cells from preimplantation of mouse embryos, by Dr Tesar, was published in Cell in 2007.
It is said this research has potential to repair myelin damage in neurodegenerative diseases.
Are you aware of any further developments since 2007?
