Stem cell research in the fight against disease

Stem cell research has become increasingly important in fighting a whole host of diseases

 

The work of The Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences at the renowned Pennsylvania State University covers a wide range of applications in the fields of basic biomedical research and applied scientific investigation.

Stem cell research has become increasingly important in fighting a whole host of diseases and even treating cancer. In fact, in the field of regenerative medicine in particular, this type of research is opening up unprecedented horizons. Stem cell therapy and transplantation can be used to repair or even replace dysfunctional cells and organs with the help of tissues grown in vitro. The Huck Transgenic Mouse Core Facility at Pennsylvania State University specializes in embryonic stem (ES) cell research.

 

Auto-sterilization reduces the risk of potential external contamination to a virtually non-existent level.
