The Ethics of Human Cloning and Stem Cell Research …

"California Cloning: A Dialogue on State Regulation" was convened October 12, 2001, by the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University. Its purpose was to bring together experts from the fields of science, religion, ethics, and law to discuss how the state of California should proceed in regulating human cloning and stem cell research. A framework for discussing the issue was provided by Center Director of Biotechnology and Health Care Ethics Margaret McLean, who also serves on the California State Advisory Committee on Human Cloning.

An Overview of Stem Cell Research | The Center for …

Post Date: 04/2005, Updated 08/2009Author: CBHD Research Staff In November of 1998, scientists reported that they had successfully isolated and cultured human embryonic stem cellsa feat which had eluded researchers for almost two decades. This announcement kicked off an intense and unrelenting debate between those who approve of embryonic stem cell research and those who are opposed to it. Some of the most prominent advocates of the research are scientists and patients who believe that embryonic stem cell research will lead to the development of treatments and cures for some of humanitys most pernicious afflictions (such as Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease, heart disease, and diabetes)

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine job with KINGS COLLEGE LONDON | 273388 – Times Higher Education…

Job descriptionThis is an exciting opportunity to join an interdisciplinary team of Kings College London scientists working on a funded MRC programme using human induced pluripotent stem cells as tools to understand the influence of natural genetic variation on HIV replication and identifying genes and networks that regulate HIV infection.The postdoc will work under the supervision of Dr. Alessandra Vigilante and Professor Michael Malim and play a key role in setting up an innovative inter-disciplinary strategy able to analyse different omics data sets and integrate them with phenotypic data. The project will employ state of the art genomics, statistical and bioinformatics approaches to discover novel human cell factors and pathways that regulate HIV-1 replication.We look for an ambitious candidate with established expertise in bioinformatics, specifically dealing with large omics data sets and data integration.

UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center receives $5 million …

The Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA has been awarded $5 million by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, the states stem cell agency, to train young scientists and physicians to become leaders in the stem cell and regenerative medicine field. The five-year grant will enable the center to expand its Stem Cell Training Program, which was established in 2006 and funded by CIRM until 2015, when the agency changed its funding priorities. Since then, the program has been sustained by philanthropy

New nanochip reprograms cells in the body to perform different functions – New Atlas

A team of researchers led by Chandan Sen at the Indiana University School of Medicine, is moving a new nanochip device, which can reprogram skin cells in the body to become new blood vessels and nerve cells, out of the prototype phase. One of the more remarkable medical developments in the past two decades has been the ability to take specialized adult cells and revert them into the kind of non-specialized stem cells found in embryonic tissue.
