    2015-03-27

    Dr. Hinrich Habeck, the Managing Director of Life Science Nord, a leading European life science network, has visited Stem Cell Research Center. Potential cross-border cooperation areas between institutions of Life Science Nord and Stem Cell Cluster were discussed. In particular, a lot of attention was given to R&D cooperation in stem cell and cell therapeutics. In addition, opportunities to cooperate for EU-wide projects for excellence in science, such as Horizon 2020 and Eureka, were discussed.

  • A novel pathway controls stem-cell proliferation independently from differentiation

    The ability of stem cells to self-renew depends, among other things, on their ability to divide. However, the typical mechanism that controls cellular proliferation — the G1 checkpoint — is associated with differentiation in stem cells. How can stem cells proliferate without losing multipotency?
