Stroke-damaged brains could be repaired within 5-10 years using adult stem cells from teeth, according to one of Australia’s leading stroke physicians who is pioneering new research in this field.

Associate Professor Simon Koblar from the University of Adelaide and The Queen Elizabeth Hospital is leading a research project that shows dental pulp stem cells extracted from teeth may prove far more beneficial for brain repair than other types of stem cells.

His research involving adult stem cells is the first of its kind in Australia and will be explained at a free public lecture at the University of

The hardships of hope for Stem cells tourism

For people with incurable conditions, the uncertain promise of unproven treatments can outweigh the risks. As ‘stem cell tourism’ increases, one research team aims to ensure patients stay well informed – and connected to mainstream support networks.

When she was released from hospital three months after suffering a spinal injury, Natalie (not her real name) had to confront the prospect of spending the rest of her life in a wheelchair.

“I got out fairly depressed, couldn’t believe I was going to spend … life sitting in this chair, after having a fairly active life up until then, and also I was

Scientists in Melbourne for the first time have created a human stem cell reserve in Australia using a technique that avoids destroying embryos, which was developed in Japan and the United States.

The team from the Monash medical research institute produced an induced pluripotent stem cell line (IpS) that acts like embryonic stem cells, but are derived from adult skin cells. The method used to reprogram adult stem cells developed last year in Japan and the United States allows for the production of IpSs, which are used to study degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s without having to deal
