Gene expression-based cell sorting

Congratulations to Hetal Marble on the publication of her article entitled "Gene expression-based enrichment of live cells from adipose tissue produces subpopulations with improved osteogenic potential" in Stem Cell Research & Therapy. The study demonstrates that stem/stromal cells can be sorted based on their expression of the early osteogenic gene, ALPL, resulting in cell populations with increased potential for depositing bone matrix compared to unsorted controls.

ASCs resist chemotherapeutic

Congratulations to Olivia Beane on the publication of her article entitled "Adipose-derived stem cells retain their regenerative potential after methotrexate treatment" in Experimental Cell Research. The study, which investigated the effects of chemotherapeutics on non-stem cells vs. ASCs, highlights the potential for using ASCs in cell-based therapies for patients undergoing methotrexate treatment. A more detailed write-up on this study is available via Brown's News Page.
