  • They've gotten to what was our Holy Grail, which is making eggs," George Daley, a leading stem-cell scientist at Harvard , told NPR . (time.com)
  • This is an extremely important study showing that differences exist between stem cells made by nuclear transfer compared to reprogramming by transcription factors [to create iPSCs]," George Daley , a stem cell biologist at Children's Hospital Boston and Harvard Medical School, told The Scientist in an e-mail.

  • 1996
  • The first major success was Dolly the sheep, born in 1996 as the first mammal cloned from an adult cell. (citizen.co.za)
  • The first major amendment related to the use of federal funds for research involving embryonic stem (ES) cells occurred in 1996. (researchamerica.org)
  • From this point onward, this timeline provides policy landmarks affecting the course of stem cell research in the U.S. For information prior to 1996, click here (link is external) . (researchamerica.org)
  • cytoplasm
  • The 46 chromosomes are inserted into the donor egg's empty cytoplasm. (amnh.org)
  • One approach is to replace the cytoplasm (or one of its critical components, the mitochondria) of the "old" egg with cytoplasm or mitochondria extracted either from a young donor egg or from the patient's own somatic cells (see " Rejuvenating the Chance of Motherhood ? (technologyreview.com)
  • Cloning
  • Cloning fuses a hollowed-out egg cell with a donor cell, typically a skin cell, from the creature to be cloned. (usmessageboard.com)
  • And the debate is not confined to cloning of cells, but also includes concerns over health care, how resources are used, who has access to the latest developments and how the health care system is going to pay for making new applications broadly available. (natcath.org)

  • Ongoing stem cell research and cloning debates in Kansas and other states highlight a new frontier in the stem cell debate: attempts to define scientific terms for political advantage. (americanprogress.org)
  • The puppies, she said, were cloned from cells taken from "Sammie's" mouth and stomach by ViaGen Pets, a pet-cloning company based in Texas that charges $50,000 for the service. (vanityfair.com)
  • The team, at Massachusetts-based Advanced Cell Technology and the Institute for Stem Cell Research in Los Angeles, say they used the cloning methods to create the stem cells to match a 35-year-old man and a 75-year-old man. (bioethics.net)
  • If verified, it would be only the second confirmed time someone's been able to use cloning methods to make human embryonic stem cells, considered the body's master cells. (bioethics.net)
  • genes
  • With a series of microarray chips, Brambrink measured which genes were active and which were silent in both kinds of cells. (eurekalert.org)
  • mammal
  • It has been more than two decades since the world collectively freaked out over the birth of Dolly the Sheep, the first-ever mammal cloned from an adult cell. (vanityfair.com)
  • create
  • The technique could potentially be used to take skin cells from a patient to create "personalised" stem cells. (www.nhs.uk)
  • Scientific research may show that stem cells can be used to create healthy tissues to replace dysfunctional ones in people with diseases. (amnh.org)
  • human
  • This research is the first time the technique has been successful using human cells. (www.nhs.uk)
  • We have succeeded in the first and most important step of this process, which is to show we can make these very early human stem cells in a dish," said lead researcher Dr. Azim Surani. (medicaldaily.com)
  • Some suggest that this would quell the protests of critics who claim that embryonic stem cell research necessitates the destruction of human life. (bio-medicine.org)
  • As a result, a "potential human being" is not destroyed once stem cells have been extracted. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Jaenisch--a firm supporter of all forms of human embryonic stem cell research--has shown that technical concerns about this approach can be overcome. (bio-medicine.org)
  • The success of this procedure in no way precludes the need to pursue all forms of human embryonic stem cell resea rch," says Jaenisch, who is also a professor of biology at MIT. (bio-medicine.org)
